Look in the FAQ for Mailman (3.14) might be helpful.

If you are not running the latest version of your Mailman branch, then
you should consider upgrading:
  For 2.0. that would be 2.0.13
  For 2.1  that would be 2.1.3

In general, check for a locking file problem first, then check the
qfiles to see what is stuck in the queue.  It may be that one of your
users on that list has a do-it-yourself email program that is sending
out corrupt headers.

You should NEVER need to delete the existing list.  If this solves the
problem for you, then try running "check_perms -f" and see if that finds
any problems.  This will check the rights on most of the key files
needed for Mailman to run properly.

Good Luck - Jon Carnes
