It sounds like you have a rewrite or redirection rule in your Apache  
configuration that matches too generously.  It may be intended to  
redirect people who visit http://www.example.com/mailman to the  
general listinfo page.  You need to make sure that it doesn't also  
match http://www.example.com/mailman/admin/mailman.  Try something like:

RedirectMatch ^/mailman[/]*$ http://www.example.com/mailman/listinfo

The ^ and $ signs are important to anchor the match at the beginning  
of the path and to keep it from matching other trailing "mailman"
