Unless you are using some alias file trickery, procmail should not have
any impact on your majordomo lists. Procmail does not get called/used
until the "local" delivery step in processing mail. Sendmail does not
let go of a message until a program called in the aliases file has it,
(majordomo/wrapper) or it is handed off for local delivery for storage
at the file system level.
If you have a huge mailq, I will "assUme" that it is all outgoing mail.
Check the /var/spool/mqueue directory for qf* files and their content.
These will tell you why they are in the queue and undelivered.
