Is it in the archive?

Delivery of incoming messages to the 'post' script and resultant entry
in the 'in' queue is not logged by Mailman.

If there are no holds or other issues on the message, the only entries
will be in the 'post' and 'smtp' logs upon delivery to the eligible
message recipients. Holds will cause an entry in the 'vette' log as
will discards, but auto rejects will not.

Various exceptions that occur in the process will cause entries in the
'error' log.

None of these log entries will contain the postfix ID (E84DC2659F)
because Mailman doesn't know it.
