Is your Apache configured to follow symbolic links?  (Where they exist, 
the public archives are simply symbolic links to the private archives.) 
  See Apache's "Options FollowSymLinks" and make sure it applies to your 
/var/lib/mailman/archives/public directory.

That is a function of your mail server configuration.  Have it consider 
both the local part and the domain name when checking the aliases that 
direct mail to Mailman.
