[Mailman-Users] Outbox Flooded

Red Hat 9.0 with Mailman using Postfix as the MTA, we've managed to flood the "outbox" (whatever that is) with thousands of accidental messages that resulted from a series of poor choices in the setup.  

A nasty situation is upon us, sending out countless unintened (and unwanted) messages in the name of Mailman.

We are despirately trying to discover the origin, queue, or otherwise staging file of the messages so we can pre-empt their transfer.

The majority of these are messages generated from automated notifications within Mailman.

I have attempted to use a previously recommended prompt command (postsuper -d ALL> but this seems to only empty the Postfix queue.  The messasges keep coming!  It appears they are being genereated and then delivered to Postfix.

Does anyone have an idea where we can terminate the messages before they get to Postfix and are sent?
