Mailman keeps one generation of "backup" of the list configuration and
membership, but it's almost certainly gone too. The working file is in
lists/<listname>/config.pck and the backup is
lists/<listname>/config.pck.last. Normal processes for deleting a list
will remove the lists/<listname>/ directory.
Are the archives gone too? If so, there is no backup within Mailman.
2mhost.com may have system backups (used for disaster recovery, etc.)
which contain your list and/or its archives. If you could get the
config.pck file and the
archives/private/<listname>.mbox/<listname>.mbox files, you would have
what you need to recover the list and rebuild the archives.
