Right now I'm in the process of upgrading my email server, so I want all 
mail to halt.  My mail queue however keeps getting bogged down by 
mailman cron jobs.  What do I have to do to stop these.

So far I've:

1.  Stop qrunner altogether
2.  Commented out the entire MAILMAN_HOME/cron/crontab.in 

Now, another problem that I've noticed is this in the queued email I 
have this:

CronDaemonS^DrootR^DrootM^@N^XFrom: root (Cron Daemon)N^HTo: 
rootNHSubject: Cron <root at nnco2> /usr/bin/python -S 
/home/mailman/cron/qrunnerN^[X-Cron-Env: <SHELL=/bin/sh>N^XX-Cron-Env: 
<HOME=/root>N X-Cron-Env: <PATH=/usr/bin:/bin>N^ZX-Cron-Env: 
<LOGNAME=root>N^@N=/usr/bin/python: can't open file 

Now /home/mailman/cron/qrunner does not exist on my system, 
/usr/local/mailman/bin/qrunner exists, what do I edit to fix this?

But mainly I need the mail to stop queueing that is my first concern as 
I won't have the mail server running till tomorrow.
