[Mailman-Users] neither receiving or sending

After months of successful use of Mailman 2.1.5 for several lists, my 
hosting company "accidentally" unistalled Mailman. The have since 
"reinstalled" it, and it looks like all necessary files in var are there 

However no messages are apparently received (a moderated list---never 
shows a pending moderator request), nor sent (no notifications to 
administrator or mail delivered to recipients

It is a virtual host and the "add_virtual host ('www.mydomain.ext') was 
originally set up correctly but since it has been some time, and I, as a 
rank beginner cannot now locate mm_cfg.py (default 
/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py) that should exist to check that it 
is still intact. Or if 'root /usr/local/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py' is 
the correct path then mailman/Mailman no longer is there.

I did run 'newaliases' but no difference.

My hosting company has offered to back everything up and completely 
reinstall, but I don't have much faith in them at this point and have 
asked them not to do anything until I can identify probable issues. I 
guess as a minimum I would like to back up the (not public) list before 
I let them proceed.

Thank you,
