Some messages will have been delivered by Mailman to your MTA, so you 
will also need to clean out those messages.  How those are stored by 
your MTA will vary by the program, and you'll need to use their 
resources (books, online documentation, FAQs, mailing lists, etc...) 
in order to learn how to properly clean out their queues.

Mailman also maintains its own queue of messages that are going to be 
sent out, but which have not yet been handed to the MTA.  Look in 
/usr/local/mailman/qfiles/out, or /var/mailman/qfiles/out, or 
wherever it is that your OS puts the Mailman queue directory

Not the way you've described it, no.

That would be my impression, but perhaps there is something happening 
that you are not aware of and have not included in your description 
of the problem.
