MM processes incoming mail in several stages.

The Python scripts in $prefix//scripts are called by your Mail Transfer 
program to accept incoming posts. The scripts take the incoming mail and 
enqueue it (on MM 2.0.13 in the qfiles directory). The qrunner from 
$prefix/cron, as is implied by its name, is executed frequently and takes 
mail from the input queue, processes it, and sends out the resulting mail 
to the list members etc.

If the qrunner is not working right then Mailman will not do its job.

Sorry I cannot help with your base problem but I use neither debian nor 
exim and you need help not guesses.
