It seems this is a Postfix issue, not a Mailman issue, at least as far
as the messages still queued for delivery is concerned.

If you don't want to process any future returned bounces, you could
probably just change the <listname>-aliases address to pipe the
message to the bit bucket.

As far as emptying the Postfix queue goes, this would be better persued
using lists or other resources dedicated to Postfix rather than
