Yes, there's an ID on the outbound posts on the list.  I'm willing to ignore
this for now, though.

This led me to discover my crontab for user mailman was broken in a very odd
manner.  Wiping it out and installing from crontab.in fixed the problem.
I'm sorry for this being mundane, I half expected the crontab entries to be
managed from mailmanctl and didn't look deeper than seeing if crontab -l
looked as expected.

Big problem solved!  Everyone knows their password now.  Best regards,
