It queues it in qfiles/virgin.  From there, Mailman's qrunners have to
be running to process it further. Did you start Mailman
(bin/mailmanctl start)?

Actually, I see this is a catch22. You can't start Mailman until after
you create the 'mailman' list, but now that you've created the list,
when you start Mailman you should receive the mail. If not, see
