For that one copy of that one message, yes -- it's been delivered.  And 
that delay only covers when the message comes into the postfix queue and 
when it is delivered from the postfix queue.  That doesn't take into 
account the amount of time that the message may have been sitting in the 
Mailman queue, but then we should be able to account for that in the 
Mailman logs.

But lots of messages showing up with a high value in the delay= 
parameter would clearly show that the problem is after Mailman, and 
would be an issue that needs to be resolved within postfix, or between 
postfix and your upstream server(s).

That would do it.  You need to talk to your ISP.
