That directory is empty.

Yes, its there.

The only SMTP log that has anything in it is the info log (error and
warning are both empty). I guess that makes sense when everything is
working, Postfix-wise. However, I think I see the message, if it is from
listname-bounces. The problem is, I don't see who it is to (I think I
may have the Postfix logging set wrong) so I don't know for sure if it
really is the message and there is no indication it was sent, just removed.

That is always the first place I check for missing email.
