mlmmj control/access discard spam first, then deny html
Whilst looking at issue 69004, I noticed some 3000 queued mails on anna. It looks like a lot of spam, denied due to HTML contents. I took a quick look at the mlmmj access settings, and we first deny HTML content, then we discard spam. I think it ought to be the other way around - first discard spam, then deny HTML content. I think that'll significantly reduce the queue on anna/elsa. Now I just have to come with a sed incantation to edit the access settings for our 118 lists :)

- Private changed from Yes to No
What we typically have is this (probably from the list template)
deny ^X-Spam-Status:.*HTML_MESSAGE discard ^X-Spam-Level: \*\*\*\*\*\* discard ^X-Spam-Flag: YES
I suggest this is better:
discard ^X-Spam-Level: \*\*\*\*\*\* discard ^X-Spam-Flag: YES deny ^X-Spam-Status:.*HTML_MESSAGE

The number of queued mails on 'anna' has dropped to about 900, which could be seen as a significant improvement. Or just seasonal variation :-)
The following lists have bounces in the queue currently:

After some more filtering it leaves about 95, of which quite a few are web_jekyll and the bounces. Some were from nginx on pontifex. I have fixed the cron job to send to admin-auto instead.
