Thanks for your suggestion, Tom.
I looked into this before but Mailman uses Python which isn't available on
our host. I haven't been able to find a host using python that comes with
good recommendations for customer support and is cheap. I'm running a
self-help group, funding it myself and this is the first time I have had a
website , mailing list and so on so it took ages researching in the first
place. Changing hosts would be a major hassle for me.
Googling "missing messages majordomo" led me to this
601/msg00240.html mentioning queuing. I've not idea what queuing is or what
to do about it. Could this be the trouble?

Recently our list administrator changed from "Majordomo" to
"Mailman". If your problem has been going on for a long time, please
give it a little bit of time under the new system. I think Mailman
is a more robust system.
Intermittent error conditions such as what you have bee experiencing
are extremely difficult to trouble shoot. Total failures are easy
compared to "sometimes it fails" kind of errors conditions.
