If there are problems in Mailman's SMTP delivery to the MTA, they will
be logged in Mailman's smtp-failure log. Also, whether the message is
rejected by the MTA at SMTP time or accepted and then rejected later
there should be an entry in Mailman's bounce log, although this doesn't
contain diagnostic info.

Also the MTA's logs should have complete info.
