Are you sure archiving is enabled for this list?

Is there a global mailbox file at
archives/private/telephone_logs.mbox/telephone_logs.mbox or just the
archives/private/telephone_logs.mbox/ directory without the file?

If the archives/private/telephone_logs.mbox/telephone_logs.mbox file
exists and contains the past posts to the list, then

bin/arch --wipe list-name

should build archives. If the .mbox file is there and the HTML archives
are not being created, there is probably a permissions issue.
