[Mailman-Users] Moving a List

I am now able to send to the list. Mailman's MTA (Postfix) is set to relay mail through our Messaging firewall. It just so happened there was a minor problem there interrupting mail flow from Mailman. That is now fixed.
Everything now seems ok with this moved list but for one thing. Messages will not archive. I can see the archive as it was before the move... but new messages will not go to the archive.
If I try to rebuild the archive for this list with ./arch --wipe LISTNAME, and then check permissions with the ./check_perms command, I get the following result:
directory permissions must be 02775: /private/var/mailman/archives/private/LISTNAME
directory permissions must be 02775: /private/var/mailman/archives/private/LISTNAME/2009-February
directory permissions must be 02775: /private/var/mailman/archives/private/LISTNAME/2009-January
directory permissions must be 02775: /private/var/mailman/archives/private/LISTNAME/attachments
directory permissions must be 02775: /private/var/mailman/archives/private/LISTNAME/attachments/20090129
directory permissions must be 02775: /private/var/mailman/archives/private/LISTNAME/attachments/20090204
directory permissions must be 02775: /private/var/mailman/archives/public/LISTNAME
It then instruct me to re-run the check_perms command with the -f flag to fix. It seems to fix the permissions, but messages will still not archive. Ownership of the /private/LISTNAME folder reverts back to root as well.
I'm completely stumped.

What is the MTA? What does the MTA log say that it did with the
message? If the MTA uses aliases for delivery to mailman did you do
what needs to be done to create the aliases (maybe just
bin/genaliases, maybe installeng them manually)?
