Do your support staff give you any idea what the problem was, or what
they had to do to correct it?  That might give us something to go on in
identifying where, exactly, the problem lies.

I've been running Mailman since the 2.0betas, and haven't had any
ongoing stability problems, although I'll admit I don't have any
particularly high-traffic lists at the moment.  And I don't see anything
in the changelog since 2.0.1 that looks like it was meant to address the
sort of issue you seem to be describing (although you certainly haven't
given much in the way of detail upon which to make that judgment...)

Mailman does website archiving as well, if it's configured to do so.
You'd still be without the web-based posting, but I'd venture that it
might be better than nothing.  Perhaps something else to ask your
support folks about...
