Hi Rod:

How do you know notices to new members are not being sent out? Did you test
this yourself? The first thing I would look at is to see if the email
address you are posting from has the necessary permissions set in your list
configuration options to post to the list. Have you checked the moderator's
queue to see if posts are being caught up there?
