Thanks Enriko...

Mailman log files doesn't have any information (/home/mailman/logs)
pertaining to this. There were 3 files there and none have changed today
(when I tried doing sending a mail to the list).

The info file MTA log folder (/var/log/mail/) was indeed changed and the
changed contents are below
Jul 24 07:39:56 getafix postfix/pickup[1314]: 4F07D1AAB7: uid=501
Jul 24 07:39:56 getafix postfix/cleanup[1842]: 4F07D1AAB7:
13956.4F07D1AAB7 at getafix.tnc>
Jul 24 07:39:56 getafix postfix/qmgr[25836]: 4F07D1AAB7:
from=<sbabu at tnc.org>, s
ize=599 (queue active)
Jul 24 07:39:56 getafix postfix/local[1844]: 4F07D1AAB7:
to=<mailman at getafix.tnc
>, relay=local, delay=0, status=sent ("|/usr/bin/procmail -a $DOMAIN -d

And the mail I sent to mailing list goes to mailman's mailbox from where
I can read using any unix mail clients.

Procmail is installed in my system. I've not studied how mailman works.
Though I'm assuming that it monitors a mailbox for incoming mails and
then triggers off some process when a mail comes in. Looks to me like
that "triggering" is not happening, and I don't know what the triggering
should be :-( Off course, being a newbie to mailman and postfix, I could
be dead wrong.

Thanks again

First to go:
Check the mailman and MTA (Postfix) logfiles...

Go there, check them and come back here...
