This is another copy of mm_cfg.py, not a copy of relevant
/var/log/mail.info (or /var/log/mail.log) entries.

Do the actual entries contain things like

status=sent (delivered to command: /usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman request


status=sent (delivered to command: /usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post

Or do they perhaps say

status=sent (delivered via mailman service)

including /var/log/mailman/error?
