[Mailman-Users] New list's SMTP failures

Emailing mailman-owner at mydomain.com has not worked.  The mailman list has valid owner config, but has no members.

Unfortunately, the original spam email has cleared from the mail spool.  However, I feel certain that the To: address was mailman at mydomain.com.  There were several CC: addresses which are stuck in the queue.  This was truly a spam email.
