I am having a problem with Mailman sending out messages.  It was working
fine then stopped working about a week ago.  I have mailman installed on
an unmanaged virtual host, and did not make any changes to mailman

When I send a message to any one of my lists I don't get a bounce or any
errors, and it of course doesn't show in the archive.  The website is
still up and all functions appear to be working.

In the directory /var/spool/mailman/qfiles there are a large number of
messages (all of them i think) (.msg and .db files).

I don't know how to start and stop mailman, in my bin directory there is
no mailmanctl file, but maybe that is only for older or newer versions
of mailman.

It is mailman 2.0.9 on redhat linux 7.3,

If anyone can help please email me directly or through the list.
