Sorry to resurrect this.
1. When I tried to run configure, I realised the configure file wasn't there. I downloaded the same version - 2.1.15 - and used the file from there. Was this the right place to get the configure file?
2. It looked like the new configure options would have worked. Does that look right?checking for --with-username... [my username]checking for user name "[my username]"... okaychecking for --with-groupname... userschecking for group name "users"... okaychecking permissions on /[my path]/mailman... okay
3. Configuration stopped because a file was missing. Each time I uploaded the missing file from the recent download, the next attempt stopped for another file. I gave up as obviously I was barking up the wrong tree. I assume I used to have these files so what went wrong? Here they are:config.status: error: cannot find input file: misc/paths.py.inconfig.status: error: cannot find input file: Mailman/Defaults.py.inAlso.... install-sh, src/, misc/, Mailman/Defaults.py.in...
4. *IF* the answer is to install from scratch then move across the archive, could or should I use the latest version 2.1.17? 
Thanks in anticipation. If you require further information please let me know.
Best wishes
