[Mailman-Users] Mailman receiving mail, but mail not going out.

I'm running mailman 2.1.5 on RH FC3.
Okay, I've searched the list and have read through many posts.  I've read the 
FAQ about what to check 
(http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py?req=show&file=faq03.014.htp).  Checked 
everyone and made sure all was working: crons, mailmanctl, etc. Qrunner is 
running, all 8 processes.  Sendmail is using smrsh, but mailman is in /etc/smrsh 
linking correctly. Mail is being received and passed to mailman and placed in 
the mailman queue - where it sits.

I'm using sendmail as the MTA and the problem is probably with it, but I can't 
figure it out. I've configured it to accept mail from all domains, to not do a 
DNS lookup. All the aliases are in /etc/aliases. The db has been refreshed. 
Sendmail restarted.

The ~mailman/logs/qrunner shows nothing except when I stop and restart mailmanctl:
Apr 19 11:55:56 2007 (9492) VirginRunner qrunner started.
Apr 19 11:55:56 2007 (9491) OutgoingRunner qrunner started.

Nothing shows up /usr/local/mailman/logs/error.
Nothing shows up /usr/local/mailman/logs/smtp.

Here's the tail maillog:

The mail sits in /var/spool/mailman/in.

Any ideas? Any suggestions?  I'm completely stuck.
