Thanks for the response. I actually started just using the full path 
names, but that's a helpful shortcut.

Ok, so I ran...

//usr/lib/mailman/bin///checkperms -f/

... and it fixed a bunch of issues... the current result is "No problems 
found" ... and now and I'm running...

//usr/lib/mailman/bin/arch listname//
... which processes a bunch of stuff, but the archive still does not 
update past 2008. When I look at the log, it is only processing archives 
though June 2008, even though it's a fairly active list and has had as 
many as 25 posts a day in the last few weeks.


/./check_db -a/

... I get results for all lists that look like...

/[root@[domain] bin]# ./check_db -av
List: mailman
   /var/lib/mailman/lists/mailman/config.pck: okay
   /var/lib/mailman/lists/mailman/config.pck.last: okay
    [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 
    [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 

... and now I'm really not sure what to try next. I also tried "arch 
--wipe" with no change in results and "cleanarch" which just spits back 
instructions and doesn't seem to run any operations. I'm not sure I have 
the cleanarch syntax right, nor do I really understand its function.

... With everything I've tried, it rebuilds the archives, but does not 
incorporate recent posts.

Lists started since the server move seem to archive new messages without
