It is correct that /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/* are symlinks to

/var/lib/mailman/archives/private/ must be searchable by the web server
user. It must be either mode o+x (i.e. drwxrws--x) or owned by the web
server user. See <http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node9.html>.

If that isn't the answer, see
