Title:My email was rejected even though I'm a member of the mailing list!
FAQ ID:F0218

Description:

User is wondering why their message to a particular mailing list was rejected. They are currently subscribed to the mailing list in question.

 

Solution:

Mailman (the mailing list software) is designed to only accept email messages from addresses that are subscribed to the list. If your messages are getting rejected, check your membership. The email address from which you send messages must exactly match your subscription email address. If it does not, Mailman assumes you are not subscribed and will reject your message.
