Something or things on your server are not working. Someone has to
access the server and find out what's wrong. No one on this list other
than you can do this.

Your server at does not respond to connect requests to
port 80. This probably indicates the web server (apache?) is down

Exim does respond to port 25 connects, so presumably mail is being
delivered to Mailman's queues, but if you get no replies from Mailman,
perhaps there is an outgoing mail issue or one or more of Mailman's
qrinners is not running.
