I assume this is a public archive, since a private archive would not
depend on anything beyond what you've done.

Check to see if you've made any changes (in mm_cfg.py) to

PUBLIC_ARCHIVE_URL = 'http://%(hostname)s/pipermail/%(listname)s'

The 'hostname' in this URL comes from looking up the list's host_name
attribute in an inverted VIRTUAL_HOSTS dictionary. The host_name
attribute should be correct after 'fix_url', but if your VIRTUAL_HOSTS
dictionary is messed up or has the same 'email host' value for
multiple 'url host' keys, this could be a problem.

Following your redefinition of DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST and DEFAULT_URL_HOST
in mm_cfg.py, you should have


followed by add_virtualhost() lines for other virtual hosts if any.
