The only back-ups would be those made by the hosting service that
hosted your Mailman list. This is not us.

Mailman maintains a cumulative archive in mailbox format in the file
archives/private/LISTNAME.mbox/LISTNAME.mbox in Mailman's tree on the
hosting server. This file can be used by Mailman's bin/arch tool to
rebuild the HTML archive.

You need to contact your former hosting site to get the LISTNAME.mbox
file if you can.
