>/usr/local/mailman/logs/post shows 19 posts today to the various lists.
The Postfix logs would be of more benefit I think here, as well as the mail queue.
You say you route mails through a Barracuda host, do you allow traffic directly into this machine on port 25 externally? Is this machine hosting lists only, and if so, how is the Barracuda/Postfix server verifying recipients as early as possible (in case the domain is receiving large amounts of bounced mail and is rejecting with a full NDR and not a bounce at SMTP stage? Does outbound mail get delivered direct from Postfix or are you smarthosting to the Barracuda?
