unable to send mail to tb-planning mailing list

He's on the list, and as far as I can tell it's configured so that his mail should go through.  He's tried a few times, and it's gone into the ether.  Nothing in the moderator queue (though the moderation bit is unset for his address anyway). Other people have successfully sent mail to the list without a problem.

As far as I can tell, the Mailman Web UI doesn't expose the logs I'd need to tell if Mailman ever saw the message, and if not, presumably access to the Mozilla MTA logs would be required to diagnose further.

Setting this bug to critical in part because I don't know the actual scope here.  We're in the middle of launching tb-planning and trying to persuade people to use it for day-to-day work, and if it's failing for more than just him, that's likely to affect adoption non-trivially.  If it's truly just a problem for Blake, then this is slightly less critical, but still important.  In either case, I'm hoping it will be straightforward to diagnose, given the inclusion of the message here:

My only thought is that we might want to separate "Core developers" and 
"People being paid to work on TB." into two different items, because 
they may not be the same set of people.

Other than that, it seems like it'll be extra work for people like me, 
when folks try to convince me to ask for blocking, but less work on the 
triagers, and I think that's a fair trade, or at least worth a try.

User error.  Sorry about that.  (My ISP forces me to verify new email addresses before I can send from them, and I didn't get a bounce message from them for some reason.)
