You can look in the mailman "smtp" log. There will be entries with the
Message-Id: of the message saying how many users it was sent to (there
may be more than one entry per message). Beyond that, you can look in
the "bounce" log to see if mailman received any bounces and in the
MTA's logs to see what the MTA did with the messages.
