I'm not sure what you mean by this question, but according to the
listinfo page whos URL you gave above, the list posting address is
<chineselist at imaboy.cn>. If you mean "how do I find what happens to mail
to this address?", The DNS MX records for this domain are

imaboy.cn.              3600    IN      MX      4 mxzwg11.mxhichina.com.
imaboy.cn.              3600    IN      MX      10 mail.imaboy.cn.

which means that mail to the imaboy.cn domain will preferably be routed
to mxzwg11.mxhichina.com with fallback to mail.imaboy.cn, neither of
which appears to be the Mailman server at imaboy.cn. Thus, you need to
arrange for those servers to relay list mail to imaboy.cn.

If you installed Mailman from source with default settings, Mailman's
logs are in /usr/local/mailman/logs. If you configured with --prefix= or
--with-var-prefix=, the logs are in the logs/ directory subordinate to
the var-prefix or prefix directory. If you installed Mailman from a
package, see the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/OIDD>.
