Not sure why you were sent to the FAQ edit, you need the FAQ search. 
I'd say that the proper place for unanswered questions is this list.

For (a), I have all my lists send the posts to my local email and an
external email address. If they both get it, then it's been through
the list processor.

For (b), the message will be attempted to all members that aren't marked
as 'nomail', and you can reasonably be sure that's happening. What you 
can't see at the mailman level is whether the sending MTA is able to 
deliver the message (after getting it from mailman). You really need to 
be looking at the MTA logs.
