Then why would "postsuper -r ALL" have any effect?

Perhaps if you asked your question on a list or forum devoted to
configuring hardware and MTAs for delivering large volumes of mail,
you'd get a better response. This list is for support of Mailman. As far
as I can tell, your issue is downstream of Mailman after Mailman has
successfully delivered your mail to your main outgoing MTA and is
therefore, not a Mailman issue.
