    i suspended a user who was running a heavy mailing list,
    eventhough he was suspended within few seconds of his bulk mailing activity,
    the mailman-bounces is filling up my queue and are getting delivered to root's mail ID.

    2 things which came to my mind.

    1). how to stop mailman from processing the suspended user.
    2). how to discard the bounces, is it safe to do so ?

    some details from one of the bounce message to help

    I am also having this problem 5 days after the event.

    Server load is very high and I have to keep deleting thousands of mails from the mail queue.
