If the problem is with mail to aliases other than the bare listname,  
double check the local_part_suffixes in your Mailman router in your  
Exim configuration.

Is the difference between those lists with public and private  
archives?  (If so, and it is the public archives that are missing,  
make sure you have your web server configured to have the option  
FollowSymLinks, at least for your mailman/archives/public tree.)

By changing ARCHIVER_CLOBBER_DATE_POLICY in your mm_cfg.py you can  
avoid relying on the user supplied Date:.  Setting it to '2' allows  
only munging the date if it is outside the limits defined by the  
ARCHIVER_ALLOWABLE_SANE_DATE_SKEW variable.  (See the documentation  
in your Defaults.py file.)
