[Mailman-Users] Bug in Mailman version 2.0.3

You are going to get a better response if you quote exactly from the
Mailman $prefix/logs/error logfile the information that was logged into it
when the problem occurred.
You should find that there is a Python traceback immediately prior to the
line that reads "CORRUPT ARCHIVE FOR LIST <listname>". This may contain
useful diagnostic information that will help people help you.
The problem is not necessarily with the list's .mbox file but more likely
to be with the $prefix/archives/private/<listname>/pipermail.pck used to
support the HTML archiving done by the builtin Pipermail archiver.
Repost with more information from the MM error log.
You could try rebuilding the problem list's HTML archives from its mbox
archive using $prefix/bin/arch
This might reconstruct the HTML archive from the list's mbox but you should
back up the list's archives before you try this.
Note that the mbox is used to create the HTML archive NOT the other way around!
