Most if not all will be in Mailman's out/ queue some may be in the
virgin/ queue. You can probably identify them by time stamp and if in
doubt, Mailman's bin/show_qfiles will show you their contents.

Unwanted ones can simply be removed.

In a default Mailman installation these queue directories are in
/usr/local/mailman/qfiles or wherever you configured var_prefix to be.
Various packages put them in other places such as /var/spool/mailman/.
