Without any logs - nobody knows what's going on. Mailman logs quite
comprehensively, so see if you can see the mail being sent out and
received by the MTA having been processed by Mailman, see if the mail is
actually getting accepted by Mailman.

It'd help a great deal if you pinpoint exactly where the mail is getting
held up.

The following FAQ entries might help you:

I'm unsure as to what you mean by 'daemon', are Mailman's qrunner
processes running?

You should not use Defaults.py to configure Mailman, instead copy and
paste what you need out of Defaults.py into your mm_cfg.py. The reason for
this is that if you upgrade your version of Mailman, your site
configuration will be completely and irreversibly overwritten.
