Another quick update: I had old queue files in qfiles/out. So I
cleared out everything in the folder and restarted all the qrunners.

Now I can get the OutgoingRunner to send one post or one message.
After it's restarted, it sends one message correctly. The next post
or confirmation message after that goes nowhere.
