To all that have offered suggestions, thanks. However, I am still stuck. I have checked all Mailman 
logs, qfiles, restarted Mailman, still nothing is delivered.

In one experiment, I dumped all 40,000 subscribers and just subscribed myself and posted 
successfully. If a bad address or the number of subscribers was the culprit, wouldn't there be 
something logged in the Mailman logs? Has anyone a situation like this with a large list?
