Based on a prior post in this thread, I'm guessing
/var/mailman/qfiles/retry and /var/mailman/qfiles/out, however this is
moot. See below.

If the post log shows the post was sent, it's out of Mailman's hands.
It has been passed to the outgoing MTA and whatever happens after that
is up to the MTA and beyond.

Based on 'everything after three messages is blackholed', I'd say the
outgoing MTA/ISP has a limit on the number of
messages/recipients/whatever that can be sent within some time period.
