It may be a permissions problem on the archives somehow although if you
built the archive on the new system with "bin/arch --wipe <listname>",
it should be OK. If you didn't use "--wipe", try it again with that

Also check the Mailman error log and see if the messages are in the
shunt queue (if so, run bin/unshunt to get them out after the problem
is resolved).
