Unless you have changed things like DELIVERY_MODULE or the SMTP_LOG_*
settings in mm_cfg.py, there should be a 'smtp_failure' log entry for
each message in the retry queue.

Also, there should be 'qrunner' log entries.

Are you sure you don't have Mailman logs somewhere other than where you
are looking? Check mm_cfg.py and maybe Defaults.py for an assignment
