Since you refer to cronjobs and aliases, I assume you have seen FAQ
4.78 <http://wiki.list.org/x/A4E9>. The problem is most of the things
that FAQ refers to are not available to you in a hosted environment.

Since the messages are getting archived, a lot is working.

Do the members have delivery enabled and not digest mode? I.e. are the
"nomail" and "digest" columns unchecked in the Membership List?

Is mail bouncing? I.e. make sure bounce_processing and the
Notifications are set to Yes on the Bounce processing page. Then click
on member addresses in the Membership List and make sure there's no
indication of bouncing near the top of the membership page.

If all the above seems OK, you'll have to get help from the hosting
