That's note the case with my host. There's virtually zero load on it at
the moment. It's a test server.
Also fyi: all the inbound email to my list is showing up in my pipermail

I tried that, or at least according to Dave Sill's "The qmail handbook,"
and not difference in behavior.
I'm using tcpserver with qmail-smtpd, and here's my /etc/tcp.smtp:
root at biz2tek 8:47pm [...vpopmail/etc] 136> cat /etc/tcp.smtp
root at biz2tek 8:47pm [...vpopmail/etc] 137>

There's absolutely zero qmail-smtpd log entries (from what I can tell)
corresponding to a smtp usage from a localhost process. I'm grasping for
air here and I find it rather frustrating.
Is there any way I can isolate the outbound/smtp mailman
process/program/module? I've got all my other outbound email mechanisms
working, but I'm wading through a mountain of modules in mailman trying to
figure out exactly which part is responsible for the outbound mail.
Still digging...any other thoughts/troubleshooting welcome, particularly
when trying to isolate the outbound email.
