I believe that just means that, rather than connecting immediately,
your sendmail has put the mail request on its queue (visible with
mailq).  I'm not 100% sure what all the reasons are for this;
perhaps "max number of sendmails already running" or something.
But it's worth checking to see if your sendmail ever sends those;
do something like "grep PAA09366" in /var/log/maillog to see what
the disposition of that message was, and/or look at the mailq output.
Perhaps your sendmail is gagging.

But either way, it looks like that message has been handed over to
sendmail; if it was a Mailman message, the problem's outside of
Mailman, most likely.

looks like qrunner is indeed running every minute, again pointing
away from Mailman.

Yes, looks fine.  It should be noted, of course, that all qrunner
does is clean out ~mailman/qfiles; if nothing is there, the mail
has left Mailman's hands.
