The list should send the reminder if 'webmaster at python.org' is a member.
The header below indicates that mail is being sent from the server to
<webmaster at python.org> so that would appear to be the subscribed address
unless it is being somehow rewritten by the sending server which seems

I have looked through the mail logs on mail.python.org for Sept 5 and 6
(CEST) and I see no evidence of any reminder from the
guardasmailing at guardasmunicipais.com.br list having arrives although I
do see posts from the list, some accepted and some rejected by spambayes.

I have requested unsubscribe of webmaster at python.org from
guardasmailing at guardasmunicipais.com.br both by email and by web and
another reminder by web. We'll see if the confirmations arrive.

And I've now looked in the mail.log, and it seems all 3 of these
messages are rejected by spambayes.

I don't have time to look further, but there may be some ways to
temporarily whitelist this server. They all come from
