I suggest looking in Mailman's 'post' and 'smtp' and perhaps
'smtp-failure' logs to see if the message is processed through the
super-list and all the subordinates. Also look in the MTA logs to see
what got to the MTA and what it is doing with it.

I suspect this is not a Mailman issue, but rather the volume of
outgoing mail is triggering something else.
