[Mailman-Users] Lists are missing

Thanks.  That got me in the right direction that I got mailman working again
and postfix needed to know where the aliases had moved to.  But now I have
created a new list named the same as the old list and it is working.  But I
would like to move all the old users, password, archives etc. to the new
directories. Is that possible?

FC3 relocated the installation directories for mailman to be FHS compliant
and allow better integration with SELinux, this is documented in
/usr/share/doc/mailman-*/INSTALL.REDHAT and it explains the directories you
need to move if you are trying to overlay a new release on an old release
and want to preserve a previous installation.
