I'm still getting a log in for a private archive at
http://lists.serverone.co.uk/mailman/private/bfm . It can't be both, and
something still lives there. This also shows up in your locate results,
lots of stuff under the private/bfm .

And you won't - it's a virtual directory created when the virtual
files are created. What is in /usr/local/mailman/archives/public/bfm
should show up on-line as http://lists.serverone.co.uk/pipermail/bfm . I
suspect you have wrong aliases set in /etc/aliases. You need to remove the
aliases for the private archive, add the ones for the public archive, and
probably run `newaliases' . I don't know if it matters, but I'd remove the
old list completely (from the web or the command line) before changing the
aliases. As I recall removing a list does not by default remove the
archives, so you could move the archives to the public list if you want.
I also wonder how you were able to create a new list with the same
name as an existing list? Maybe it did not create it, and you need to
remove the old one, create the new one, then do the aliases.
