[Mailman-Users] Weird Configuration Error

Hi guys.. I was wondering if someone could help me out with this error.
Ok I recently had a disk failure but I was able to tar the mailman
directory on the bad disk.
I then reinstalled mailman 1.0b8 and copied all the things I thought
needed to be copied. I copied the directories in /var/lib/mailman/lists
and the /var/lib/mailman/archives. I then created a test list and attepted
to use that. It works.. But the lists that I copied do not work. I don't
see any other problems with the list, ie I can edit the config stuff for
each list in the web interface.
Just to make sure I did the simple things.
1. yes I recreated the /etc/aliases file
2. I am using smrsh and I did create a link from
/var/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper to /usr/adm/sm.bin
3. I did re-edit the /var/lib/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py and
One thing do I have to worry about group privleges or something like that
and if so what?
Here is the error I get when I send email to the old lists.
