Do you believe this? It seems you may have shell access. If so, do

ps -fAw | grep python

to be sure that 1) ArchRunner is running and 2) if the command option
is something other than --runner=ArchRunner:0:1 (i.e. if it is sliced)
that all slices are running. E.g. if you see a process with option
--runner=ArchRunner:0:2, there must be s second one with option
--runner=ArchRunner:1:2. Whatever the second 'n' is there should be n
processes with first number 0,1,...,n-1.

Also look in qfiles/archive to see if there are messages waiting to be

If the lists are working, the list's archive attributes are 'Yes',
ArchRunner is running and qfiles/archive is empty, yet your messages
aren't being archived, I think there have to be exceptions in
Mailman's error log.
