If this is a RedHat/CentOS Mailman package, there is no qfiles/
directory per se - they ar /var/spool/mailman/out and
/var/spool/mailman/retry. See <http://wiki.list.org/x/KYCB>

Does that mean that your Python is older than 2.4 or that you are
unwilling or unable to apply the patch to get the debugging info from
Python's smtplib?

I agree that Mailman and Postfix are "stuck". If your Python is 2.4.x
or later, you can apply the patch in the FAQ to find out what is
happening leading up to their being stuck.
