People subscribed to digest, people with delivery disabled.

What does Mailman's

bin/list_members --regular --nomail=enabled | wc

bin/list_members --regular --nomail=enabled

Some posters may have 'not metoo' set. Some recipients may be directly
addressed in To: or Cc: and have 'nodupes' set.

You can find this by looking at the outgoing MTA's logs.
