Hi guys,

I deleted some helpmsg from filesystem manually, then the mail list  
web management tools "Tend to pending administrative requests"
doesn't work anymore. it report some error.
why mailman care about that?
how can I rebuid the heldmsg database let it work again?
Set "Restrict posting privilege to list members?" to no, change it a
un-moderated mail list , then change it back will work?


the error:
Bug in Mailman version 2.0beta2
