"From one to the other" -- does that problem go both ways or is it, for
example, always originating news posts not making it to the mailinglist?

Some could be a size problem. I manually moderate messages above a
certain size to go through (>50KB or >100KB depending on the list) and
INN may just not allow those to come through. Can you double check if
it's those kind of messages?

Also, some messages might get held for moderation if they are HTML based
which would cause delays (though not drops since when they are accepted
it should go from mail to news).
