FAQ
First, after adding myself to a mailman group an hour later the
verification message appeared.

I then added another email account I have and while the mail.log file
indicates it was accepted for delivery I never received it . I have
sent mail to this account to verify it does receive mail.

Below find the two delivery notifications from the mail.log file.

I think I can change the cron execution to take care of the delay.
Where is the cron file for MailMan?

As to the second mail, I don't understand why I did not receive it.
The delay is different for the two
mails. What does 'delay' mean?

    You need to check the Mailman's logs to see evidence of messages being
    handled. The information in Mailman's logs should tie in with the
    inbound and outbound MTA log(s) to give a fuller picture of events in
    the life of each message.

    Assuming you are running MM 2.1.x (you do not mention what version you
    are running) you can also check to see if there are any messages stuck
    in subdirectories of the MM qfiles directory and you can verify that
    the MM daemons are running using the command ps -aef | grep qrunner

    Mailman 2.1 doesn't use cron. It has qrunner jobs that are under
    the control of mailmanctl, which runs them whenever they are needed.
    As to the second mail, I don't understand why I did not receive it.

    Well, "delay=1" means that the message spent anywhere up to an
    entire whole second (or there abouts) between when it come into the
    system and when it was accepted by the remote end. Since one second
    is the resolution of the clock that is used for reporting this data,
    you probably won't ever see much of anything shorter.

    A "delay=2" means that the message spent at least an entire whole
    second in the system, and closer to two entire seconds.

    You should read the postfix documentation to get this kind of
    information, since this mailing list is for supporting Mailman, not
    postfix.

    Complain to the people at sbcglobal. Give them this log
    information and ask them to find out what happened to this message.
    No one else is going to be able to answer this question, since they
    would need access to the internal log data at sbcglobal.
