So the list isn't there. I.e., there is no lists/list1/ directory
containing at least one of config.pck, config.pck.last, config.db or
config.db.last. The directory has been renamed or removed or the
config.* files have been removed.

There is a lists/dailymail/ directory containing probably a config.pck
and config.pck.last, but these are somehow corrupted and can't be
unpickled by the list instantiation process.

Note that the current (Mailman 2.1.x) files are config.pck*. It is
normal to not have config.db* files.
