In this version of Mailman, Archiving is a function of one of the
qrunner's controlled by Mailmanctl. It will move the messages into the
archives for you (assuming you have Archiving turned on for the list).

Arch should only be used if you want to manually re-archive a list.  I
use it mainly after hand editing the Archive Mbox file for a list.

You'll find a lot of discussion about archiving in the list Archives as
well as in the FAQ.

Good Luck.  I'm sure patience will bring all things to light.
