Do you mean you can't find Mailman's log files or you can find the logs
but they contain no errors?

That seems a really strange place for Mailman's locks directory.

Do the messages get archived? Can you access the list's admin and
admindb web interfaces?

Find Mailman's logs and locks. The locks/ directory should contain at
least the master-qrunner locks "master-qrunner" and

The logs directory contains several logs and "post" and "smtp" at least
will have timestamps reflecting the most recent post to any list.
