Can you access their listinfo and admin pages directly?

Are the lists 'advertised'? If so, and if their web pages can be
accessed directly, this is probably a virtual hosts issue. I.e., the
host portion of the list's web_page_url attribute doesn't match the
host portion of the URL you are using to access the admin or listinfo
overview pages.

Are these lists hosted at the ISP? Can you see Mailman's logs? Can you
do 'ps' to see if the qrunners are running?
