[Mailman-Users] Privacy Filter Unusual Behavior

It is a Redhat package (mailman-2.1.12-25.el6.x86_64) so not from source. I have the version locked because I found updates over wrote the customizations made to the look/feel. Most of the modifications are related to hiding options from users (to protect themselves) and cosmetic (so it fits company look/feel). It was working up to some point a few months ago, I know because I was doing some testing to help a list owner make a private list. I have the version locked because I found updates over wrote the customizations made to the look/feel.

We don't use archives, I was forced to break that feature some time back. Digests also not used. Basically we made an attempt to not retain any data after a message is delivered to members.

One member should be enough.

OK. My understanding is a non-member posts to the list. The non-member gets a rejection notice. The vette log has an entry like "Message rejected, msgid: <message-id> ...". The message is also sent to the list member(s). The post log has an entry like "post to <listname> from <address>, size=..., message-id=<message-id>, success".

<listname> is the list in question; <address> is the non-member address and the <message-id> in the vette log and post log are the same.

Is all this correct?

What Mailman version is this? If not installed from source, what package? Any local modifications?
