The message is probably lodged in $prefix/qfiles.

Did you install the mailman user's crontab. Without the qrunner, which is a 
cron job, no mail will pass through Mailman. Try installing the crontab in 
$prefix/cron/crontab.in as the mailman uid's crontab

Also you are way out of date with the MM version you are running. The last 
version of was MM 2.0.x was 2.0.13 which was released nearly a year ago and 
that has superceded this year by MM 2.1.x which is up to 2.1.2. You should 
certainly consider upgrading although this is probably not the reason for 
your problem.
