I have got some junk mail in a Mailman list on our OS X Lion Server.


The settings of the list mean that it has popped up in the administrator screen.  See here:

Trouble is, whatever I do in terms of selecting options (e.g. "discard all messages marked defer") nothing at all happens...


Is there another way to get rid of these messages that doesn't use the web interface?


Thanks in advance for any help avail.

    you can do pretty much everything via command-line, here is a summary of commands


    You'll probably be using the discard command:



    you'll find the the commands here /usr/share/mailman/bin
