Yup ... just sent a test email to a test list we have set up and it 
seems to be working. It is so weird though ... there is really no way I 
can think of that these would change even after an unscheduled abrupt 
shutdown like we had. And the thing is, this server was up and running 
for two years before that and running mailman with no issues. It is like 
a ghost in the machine. Very crazy!!

I wan to thank you for hanging in there with me. I really do appreciate it.
