[Mailman-Users] qrunner using 99% of my CPU time?

I am running mailman 2.1.5 and postfix 1.1.11.

I tried a few things such as not running ArchRunner (I don't think it was 
ever running in the first place).
I checked the logs such as mail.log mail.err, mail.info and also log files 
in mailman but there was nothing that really showed something obviously 
I tried changing my mm_cfg.py to have: QRUNNER_SLEEP_TIME = seconds(5).
I tried changing my /etc/postfix/main.cf to have: 
unknown_local_recipient_reject_code = 550

None of these are helping, and qrunner -r All is still running at 99% cpu 

Also, the mailing list is actually functioning fine. Everyone is getting 
their e-mail. This is a very small server and I only have one list of 5 
e-mail addresses. Only three messages have been posted so far. There is no 
reason for qrunner to be going crazy.

If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

Make sure that there is no problem connecting to your mail
server from Mailman.  When Mailman's queue runners have
difficulty connecting (and delivering mail) to the local
mail server, they can consume a LOT of CPU time.
