You do not say what version of MM you installed; I do not know what version 
is being published on lists.org, I always download the latest stable 
release from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=103

Assume you have read and followed all the instructions in the 
$build/INSTALL file.

Have you installed the mailman user's crontab ($prefix/cron/crontab.in) so 
that the qrunner is being executed regularly (MM 2.0.x versions) or started 
$prefix/bin/mailmanctl (MM 2.1.x versions)?

What does the log for the MTA on your server (for instance /var/logs/mail) 
say is happening to incoming mail addressing to your list aliases.

Do any of the Mailman log files in $prefix/mailman/logs give any indication 
of what is happening?
