Hello mailman seems to be queuing messages in ~mailman/qfiles

I just set it up and I have only one test list named "it" I added 2 members
and both have send right away not in digest mode or so I think I see......

so when I send a message to the address it ends up in the dir .... why? how
can I force it to go and why would it be put there in the first place??
