See below

The held posts are in

I have a script I run:

         # script to purge queue
         rm -v /var/lib/mailman/data/heldmsg*
         echo Done

that zaps all of them. You could run it from cron.

When you go to the pending admin actions, you'll get a bunch of 
"message lost" indications but other than that, no problems. Just hit 
go and the remains are flushed.
