[Mailman-Users] Removing from retry queue

I have a couple of messages in my retry queue that will never go any  
where.  I've been waiting for mailman to give up on them, but it's  
been several days now, and like to avoid the clutter in my SMTP logs.

How long will mailman keep trying in the face of a 450 from the local  
SMTP server?  And where is that length set.

Also to dequeue these do I just remove the .pck files from qfiles/ 
retry ?  Or is there a better way to remove them.  I tried bin/discard  
but I complained that the messages weren't listed as suspended.

The messages are confirmation requests to email addresses with bogus  
domains.  My postfix installation is configured to give a temporary  
failure (450) to mail to address that don't resolve.
