Hey guys I am running MailMan version 2.1.9.cp2 on a RHEL 4 box with cPanel 11.  One of my cleints has a list with about 10,000 subscribers.  It is set up as a news list (only the owner sends mail oue to the subscribers) that gets an email sent about 3-4 times a year.  I have noticed that when the owner sends out an email, several emaisl get 'stuck' in the mail queue with about 500 recipients per mail.  I have nothing set on the server to limit any user in the amount of mail they can send.  The mail was sent out 2 days ago and stil about 19 emails with up to 500 recipients are in the queue.  I have noticed that among the recipients are addresses that have already received the mailing from the owner.  I guess I have a few questions...
  1) Is this 'normal' activity?
  2) Why does the mail stay in the queue even for recipients that have already received the mail?
  3) Is there a setting within MailMan that can control this?
  4) Any suggestions based on the described activity that will help the lists run better?
