      That is it (sorry, should have indicated it was a directory) and it

      I see you said you created a list, I assume you recreated the mailman 
list?  If bin/mailmanctl start still give you an error about not having a 
site list it's because something is looking or pointing in the wrong 
place.  What that might be is beyond my limited powers.
