How dangerous is it to muck with the locks directory of a mailman
I'm trying to figure out why my mailman installation doesn't send
- postfix receives mail and passes it into the mailman wrapper
(from looking at /var/log/mail)
- mailman appears to be able to send (things like subscription
confirmations get sent out)
- but normal list traffic doesn't get through.
- there are a dozen or so files in the locks directory, even
though no messages have been sent out to the lists in a couple
I'm wondering if there might be a way to kick-start mailman
again, maybe by removing the lock files. But would this be dangerous?
I'm not worried about the messages that haven't gone out, at this
point, just about getting things moving again.
