Mailman doesn't send in email address order. It is unlikely, but
possible that all the addresses you subscribed will be sent towards
the end of the list.

However, you sent this on Mon, 8 Dec 2008 05:53:52 +0000 which if I am
correct is 11:23 AM IST or almost 3 days later. If all the list
members haven't been delivered by now, something is very wrong.

>I have not yet recieved any mail to  those ids. I am list administrator and do not have shell access I have only access through Control Panel. How can I know whther the mailer is distributing or not. 

Determining whether mail has been sent and debugging such problems
requires access to Mailman and MTA logs on the server. You will have
to enlist the aid of someone who has that access.

See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/A4E9> for basic troubleshooting
