I'm very sorry to keep asking you on this, but could you please let
me know one more thing?

Since the mail is sent to mailman at example.com from mailman at example.com,
there should be that mail in any places such as /var/spool/mail/mailman,
/var/lib/mailman/archives/private/mailman.mbox/mailman.mbox and so on I 
But there is nether of them. How can I find that mail?
