I've seen a few different ways that emails can "not be delivered"; the 
good news is that they're all user-fixable.

1) One kind of problem is over-zealous spam filtering by your email 
provider.  A bit of training (regularly checking spam folders and 
fishing valid mail out) should work here.  If it doesn't, change your 
email provider.  With gmail (which your list mail and mine are using) I 
occasionally have to check the junk folder to fish out non-English 
emails, but otherwise it's pretty good at spam recognition.

2) Another is that you've tried to change email addresses in the past 
and not confirmed the "new" address.  To fix this go into "My Settings" 
and change email again, this time making sure that you click on the link 
within the "Confirm your e-mail address" email.

3) A third problem I've seen (but pretty unlikely to be the case here) 
is where you'd specified to your email provider that you want email 
delivered to a particular host and then for whatever reason that becomes 
impossible (perhaps the target server goes down). Again, fix the problem 
that prevents email delivery, reconfirm the settings with your email 
provider and hosts should start retrying again shortly.

The ubiquitous Pascal Neis has an answer that's actually far better than 
a workaround.   Using the userid for a particular user you can browse to 


or you can click through from an entry in e.g. 
http://resultmaps.neis-one.org/osm-discussions?c=United%20Kingdom .

Best Regards,
