Okay, given that a slew of messages are undeliverable due to domain 
resolution problems, which Mailman nevertheless keeps trying to 
deliver, apparently clogging things up, how do I clear them out? 
Delete all files from the qfiles directory again?  Also, I don't 
believe Mailman processed the entire list, since my address was in 
the list and I haven't received the post yet.
