I finally found some errors, in the syslog.
  postfix/smtpd[10144]: warning: connect to mysql server localhost: Too

This was trying to resolve aliases, etc and running into too many

processing, but would it interfere with the sending of the list?  How 
can I tell what's been sent and what hasn't ?
