Hard to investigate without knowing details such
as time and source
In most cases, mails are automatically rejected for being sent from an
address that is not subscribed. Due to the sheer volume of spam, we
don't let those through to the moderation queue.
Eh, I know - I wrote the text of the auto-rejection email for foundation-l ;-)
But in this case we're talking list subscribers...
Anyway, I'll follow up if it happens again or I receive more details.
Many people have multiple addresses, and sometimes accidentally send
from a different address than the one they've subscribed with.
They then email the list moderator asking why their mail didn't come
through; when I investigate I usually find that they are subscribed with
a different address from the one they're mailing me with, and recommend
that they send their email from the other address, at which point their
mails get through just fine.
