The information in
may help, but since posts get as far as being held, but no outging
mail is delivered, presumably even after approving the held posts,
much of that FAQ isn't relevant.

Do posts appear in the list's archive?

No outgoing mail says either OutgoingRunner isn't running (but we know
IncomingRunner is because posts get processed and held), so check that
all the qrunners are running (FAQ 4.78 - 1b and 5b), check Mailman's
queues (FAQ 4.78 - 8) and check Mailman's logs (FAQ 4.78 - 7),
particularly 'smtp' and 'smtp-failure', but also 'error'. This should
tell you whether the mail is getting out of Mailman or not.
