[Mailman-Users] Problem with archiver after updating server.

I very recently upgraded my server, in the process I went from exim to
sendmail, I went from redhat 7.0 to redhat 7.2  I re-formatted the drive and
restored the mailman files from the backup.  I appear to have a problem of
some sort with the archiving.

can someone tell me how to diagnose this problem further, so that I can fix

Thank you.
