There is no email command to retrieve a list of held messages.

Such a command would be fairly easy to implement, but currently doesn't
exist. See the script at <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/list_requests>
(mirrored at <http://fog.ccsf.edu/~msapiro/scripts/list_requests>) for
an alternative that may suit your purpose.

There is no email command to do this.

Implementing the functions you are looking for would not be difficult
for someone who knows Python and Mailman. For 1) and 3), you would only
need to create scripts Mailman/Commands/cmd_listheld.py and
Mailman/Commands/cmd_held.py to do what you want.

2) would require a fairly simple script. For example the script at
<http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/list_requests> could be easily modified
to mail notices instead of listing requests.
