It is not clear to me why posts are not getting to the archive. If
everything worked before and the firewall is the only change and the
posts reach Mailman, the should get to the archive even if they can't
get sent out.

Is there anything in Mailman's error log?

Which other log?

for some hints on this one.

Can you connect to port 25 at yahoo.ca (something that your firewall
may well be blocking).
