[Mailman-Users] Resident messages for moderation after removing Mailman

I've encountered a problem regarding pending messages for the internal
mailman list for Mailman.

Each day at 8:00AM, as Mailman admin/owner I was getting a message with
the subject "6 Mailman moderator request(s) waiting". The message
mentioned accessing the URL
"http://${hostname}/cgi-bin/mailman/admindb/mailman". However, accessing
it (and typing in the requested password) revealed no pending posts
(such as those described in the message).

The latest message was dated 28th of December 2009 (quite a while ago).

About a week ago I decided to uninstall the Mailman instance but that
message is still sent each day at 8:00AM. I've reinstalled it, accessed
the above URL, but there are still no pending posts.

I've done a recursive grep in /var/lib/mailman (I'm using Debian) for
parts of the message (but found nothing). I've checked all cron entries
(/etc/cron*, /var/spool/cron/crontabs/*) but found nothing relevant.

Could someone please point me to where those pending requests are held
and how can I get rid of them and stop that message from being delivered?

Many thanks,
