The page titled "Mailman mailing list Administration General Options
Section" is part of the mailman list's admin (not admindb) interface.
The admindb interface is the page linked via the "Tend to pending
moderator requests" link on the admin pages.

The admin pages have URLs that look like

The admindb interface is http://www.example.com/mailman/admindb/mailman

No. There is nothing in the config.pck that tells you anything about
held messages. Information about the messages is in
lists/mailman/request.pck, but this is the same information that will
be presented much more readably on the admindb page
