    We had a list get around 30,000 messages today. Eventually, we noticed 
emails to this list were really piling up in Mailman's "in" queue, and the 
error log showed a lot of:

Aug 26 13:44:22 2009 (9443) send_digests() failed: [Errno 31] Too many 

    I happened to get around this by setting digestable to know, but would 
like to know how I should perhaps clean up after this. Most of the emails 
to this list, unfortunately were the result of a run-away program sending 
emails. Will the next digest cron job die on this many emails and 

Thanks a lot,
