Where there any changes to Mailman since the last time it worked?

Is the list's respond_to_post_requests = Yes, and if so is the user
notified when the message is held?

Look at the MTA logs. When you see a post delivered to Mailman (which
has been held). You should see the message delivered to Mailman,
possibly the notice from Mailman (LISTNAME-bounces, maybe VERPed) to the
user. A message from Mailman (LISTNAME-bounces, maybe VERPed) to
LISTNAME-owner and delivery of that message back to Mailman followed by
a message from mailman-bounces to the actual owner and delivery of that
message. All of these should occur within seconds.

What's missing from the above scenario?
