I posted last week before moving our distribution lists from a  
Panther Server (Mailman 2.1.3) to Tiger Server (Mailman 2.1.5).   
Instructioins, esp those from Mark Sapiro were very helpful.  I was  
able to move the lists, and the archives.  Everything in the OS X  
Server Admin UI looks fine and the Mailman Web UI  looks fine.  I can  
add members, delete members.  But none of the transfered lists appear  
to work- mail sent to any of them seems lost.

I can add a new list, add members, and that list works fine, so  
Mailman is functioning.

On the transfered lists- I did these steps:
Stop mailman on old server
Stop mailman on new server
copy lists and archives

edit mm_cfg.py to show correct host name

ran fix_url.py  although told me to run as bin/withlist -l -r fix_url  

This appeared to all run successfully.

What to do next?
