That has nothing to do with mailman, but with your mailserver, i.e.
Exim. You may want to have a look at the retry rules in exim.conf (or
whatever you have as configuration file); it should be the second last
part, IIRC.

You'll have to refer to the documentation of your mail server (MTA),
i.e. Exim (which is really good) at <http://www.exim.org/>. Mailman
has completely done its job when the mail is delivered to the MTA.
