oops, sorry, hit the wrong button and sent my email

Hello, I just took over for a system admin yesterday.
He setup mailman for our mailing lists at work. I got
a call this morning around 6AM that one of our
developers had gotten a script in an endless loop, and
inside that loop was an error, that was generating an
email error notification that is sent to the list of

I did the following in order to stop the emails from
arriving (10K messages had already been delivered at
this point).

ps aux | grep mailman

I saw two processes for mailman, both:
python2.2 -S qrunner

I killed both of them.

I then went to:


and cleared all the files.

Now mailman is not sending mail, the qfiles folder is
filling up with new (authentic) messages, but I don't
know how to get qrunner going again. I thought it was
a cron tab, and would run again shortly, I guess I was
wrong. Does anyone have some advice for me?
