I cleaned up a lot of unused scripts, but appear to have missed a step, 
because the error log file has many entries for the lists that were 
removed.  Would anyone happen to know what steps are necessary to make 
the error messages go away? I used the script "rmlist" to delete the lists.

Additionally, we have been receiving complaints that certain list 
members are not getting emails in a timely fashion.  While it appears to 
be their email provider or spam filter, Mailman is being blamed.  The 
person's account is set to receive individual messages, so they are not 
being held for digest. 

I believe the "post" log shows when the message was received by Mailman; 
however I am not finding the log that says when it was sent.  I assumed 
it would be "smtp", but there is currently no mention of the recent 
email being sent (I did receive it). Do messages get sent out in batches 
and then recorded upon completion or leave the server all at once?

Thank you for any information you can provide.
