No one tried to do anything as far as removing files etc. The only
maintenance was the install of a new version of cpanel. As I have said
before, this has occured across several servers.
Doing the ls - all files were in tact but the listing showed that the mailman
lists that are broken, show 0 bytes in the files for mbox and regular files.
I will do a backup from tape for the files in question and will follow your
instructions from below in this email.
Thank you for your help.
