There are better ways to move lists such as just moving the
lists/listname/config.pck files.

But, to your immediate plea, I suspect all the mail is already in
Postfix. Use 'mailq' to list that mail and 'postsuper' to remove the
ones you don't want.

If there are any messages left in Mailman, they will be in
qfiles/virgin/ and/or qfiles/out/. You can use bin/show_qfiles (e.g.
bin/show_qfiles qfiles/virgin/*) to look at the entries and just
remove those you don't want.
