Are these messages that these people have posted themselves ("I don't see the 
message *I* posted...")?  If so, this is 'normal' for GMail.  GMail 'hides' 
messages users post on E-Mail lists.

Otherwise you need to check your SMTP logs (/var/log/mailman/smtp and/or

The only other thought is for the users to check their SPAM folders.  It is 
also possible that your server has somehow been added to a SPAMCOP type
