If your Mailman was installed from source in the default location, it's
/usr/local/mailman/qfiles/retry, but it could be anywhere. If you know
where Defaults.py and mm_cfg.py are, look in Defaults.py where you
should see

QUEUE_DIR       = os.path.join(VAR_PREFIX, 'qfiles')

and before that,

VAR_PREFIX      = '/some/path'

which would put qfiles at /some/path/qfiles.

Did you do

find / -name qfiles -print


You could also try

ls -l ~mailman
