I've been getting these mailing list probe messages from mailman regularly.
What I suspect might be a problem, is that the message says "a sample is
attached below", but there is no sample bounce message.
Is mailman firing off random probe messages? Or is it forgetting to attach
a bounce message that my email provider sent it?

I've had brought to my attention that there is a user who submitted a
subscription request. It does not show up in our subscription request
list. When we try to manually add the user to the subscriber's list, we
receive an error message saying that there is a pending subscription
request. We can't seem to find this anywhere.
We've temporarily added them to the non-member list, but that really isn't
what we want to do. Any suggestions?
This relates to the Wikimedia-L list, and the person who wishes to
subscribe has a @wikimedia.org email address. I don't think this should
really make a difference, but any suggestions would be helpful.
