I am betting you forgot to set up the Mailman crontab entries.  See
the INSTALL file for details.  I am also betting that the directory
"qfiles" in your Mailman installation directory has a bunch of messages
sitting there, waiting to be delivered.  If both of my guesses are
correct, once you set up the crontab entries, all of the e-mail you
have been expecting will show up.
