"And at that point, where was the lists/mailman/config.pck file?"
I assume it was in /var/lib/mailman/lists/mailman/config.pck because I did
not move the config file when I moved the old list over.
"And to where did you move those losts/LISTNAME/config.pck files."
I move the whole list folder over to /var/lib/mailman list/nameofthelist;
and the config.pck file was in the director.
"If this were my server, I'd 'sudo yum remove mailman', install Mailman
2.1.16 from source and move the list's config.pck files, but this could
cause SeLinux issues if you're running that."
At this point, this is not an option because my manager does not want to
compile from source.
"I am happy to continue to work with you on this, but I'm shortly going
off line for about 48 hours, so I may not be responsive during that period."
Sure! Once again, thanks for your time; I really appreciate it.
