[Mailman-Users] mail not going out; no logs

I had a successful mailman installation running on one server.  Due to some HW issues on that server that we have not been able to address, the mailman installation was moved to a different, similar server.   The qrunners all run, and the cgi stuff works for UI of the lists, but no messages are sent out.   The MTA is exim.

When a mail comes in for a list, exim successfully delivers the mail to mailman.   The message DOES appear in  qfiles/in  for a second or two before mailman grabs it.  It then next shows up in data/heldmsg-LISTNAME-nnn.pck and is not sent out.   This happens regardless of "emergency moderation" being sent, and if you go to the admin UI for the list, there are NO pending moderation requests showing.

logs/   shows nothing except when the qrunners start and stop (successfully).

I have exhausted my knowledge on debugging this and would appreciate some help in figuring out what is going on.  (I did upgrade mailman to see if that helped but the problem remains, so no permissions got fixed that way)

check_perms only flags a few cgi related things which need to be different due to group of the web server and the way suexec works.  (no g+s, different group name, non writable by group directory)

check_db flags nothing
