The pending.pck database has nothing to do with a post that might be
delivered except that OutgoingRunner is not running. Such a post would
be an entry in qfiles/out/. pending.pck is information about various
requests like subscriptions, held messages, etc. that are waiting
confirmation. The three entries above are three held messages. You can
find these messages in data/heldmsg-extremeintegration-nnn.pck files
and in the admindb interface for the extremeintegration list.

Do the posts get archived?

What's in Mailman's vette log?

What's in the list's admindb interface?

The FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/A4E9> may help.
