This is not really a Mailman question, but

login as mailman
run an MUA
navigate to the 'out' folder

At this point, you probably can't just resend the message to the final
recipients because their addresses aren't in the message, so you
probably have to 'bounce' or 'redirect' the messages back to the list
to be sent to all list members.

You could also edit /var/spool/mailman/out to make file1, ..., filen,
each containing one message and then do either

sendmail yourlist at example.com < filex

for each file, or use Mailman's

bin/inject -l yourlist filex
