Apparently you also neglected to restart Mailman or you would have
gotten the same error there.

You have changed the name of the site list, but you haven't created a
list with the new name. Your old 'mailman' list is no longer the site
list. You can delete it and create a new 'dapmm' site list or rename the
'mailman' list to 'dapmm' per <http://wiki.list.org/x/mYA9>, or if for
some reason you want to keep the 'mailman' list, that's OK, but you must
have a site list and it's name is now 'dapmm', so you need to create it.

Then, restart Mailman.
