[Mailman-Users] Mailman was working, then stopped

Hi, my Mailman lists (Mailman 2.1.5 on Red Hat) were working fine for 
over a year. Then, about a month ago, they stopped working. (My last 
administrator email came May 30.) I don't know why. When I send 
messages to a list, no messages are sent out. I'm also not receiving 
any administrative messages.

I do know that I had neglected the "Moderator Requests" for quite a 
while. One list had 88 spam messages awaiting me. Now, however, when 
I go to the Adminstration Page, there are "no pending requests."

I have run /usr/local/mailman/bin/check_perms and get "No problems 
found". Then cron daemon appears to be running (although I don't know 
what the "May30" here means and if it's a clue to why the lists 
stopped sending on May 30):

>[root at server mailman]#      ps -aux |grep cron |grep -v grep
>root      2554  0.0  0.0  1440  132 ?        S    May30   0:05 crond

The aliases all appear to still be intact. The administrative pages 
appear to work and give the correct list of members as well as 
archived messages.

Does anyone have any thoughts on what might have gone wrong?
