The next time this occurs, look in qfiles/* and see where the
undelivered messages are. Don't worry about shunted messages in
qfiles/shunt, or the archive/, bad/, bounces/, commands/, news/ or
virgin/ queues either. Undelivered messages that will be delivered
automatically following a mailmanctl restart will almost certainly be in
one of in/, out/ or retry/.
Once you've located the messages, check the state of the corresponding
runner. A command like
$ ps -fwu mailman
or whatever the equivalent is on your system normally gives something like:
UID PID PPID C STIME TTY TIME CMD

/var/mailman/bin/mailmanctl -s -q start

If the specific qrunner isn't there, that's the problem. Maybe some
system log can help determine why it died. If it is there, maybe you
have tools to help figure why it isn't doing what it should be.
