One or more of your qrunners is dying for some reason. Any of
IncomingRunner, VirginRunner or OutgoingRunner could cause the lack of
notices to the admin, but only no IncomingRunner would cause the posts
to not be in the admindb interface.

You have to check Mailman's 'qrunner' and 'error' logs for clues as to
why the runner(s) are dying.
