As to all the above questions, check all Mailman's log files, qfiles/*
queues, and qrunner processes for clues as to what's happening. Also
If a message reaches the archive, but isn't delivered to the list, it
may be in the 'out' queue because OutgoingRunner isn't running; it may
be in the 'retry' queue because of some retryable delivery error
(logged in 'smtp' and 'smtp-failure') or it may be in the 'shunt'
queue because of some processing error (logged in the 'error' log). In
any case, fixing the underlying problem and perhaps unshunting
(bin/unshunt) the message should get it delivered.
