[Mailman-Users] Mailman stopped sending mail

My Mailman 2.1.1 installation seems to have stopped delivering.
I am sending from the box that mailman sits on from an address
subscribed in my test list: newsletters at lists.routone.co.uk

My /etc/postfix/aliases is as follows:

> # Basic system aliases -- these MUST be present.
> mailer-daemon:  postmaster
> postmaster:     root

> # Person who should get root's mail
> root:           robhackney

> # mailman aliases
> mailman:        postmaster
> mailman-owner:  mailman
> newsletters:    robhackney

I have checked the logs and found nothing in bounce/ smtp/ smtp-failure/
I have checked the maillog also and can see the test mail submitted:

I have restarted mailman and rechecked logs but again nothing.
I have worked on 2 things since it stopped working:
adding in the mailman aliases into the /etc/postfix aliases file as I
saw they were not present.  There is no mail in the user mailbox
Changing my firewall rules but I can send mail from the box to both
internal and external addresses.
My knowledge doesn't extend any further and I've ran out of ideas.
Would someone be able to point me in the right direction?
