	Stopping the queue runners will keep Mailman from sending out 
anything more, but you'll also have to stop the queue runners for 
your MTA -- it's entirely possible that Mailman was finished dumping 
outgoing e-mail on your MTA long ago, and it's your MTA that is 
taking so long to send everything.

	But certainly, if you're seeing performance problems, you should 
definitely go through the FAQ and read everything that matches
