sts 15 is

015 ENOTBLK         Block device required

which means nothing to me without more info. Is there anything from that
time in Mailman's error log or the server's syslog? Was there some file
system issue around that time?

You need aliases for the mailman list as for any other. Whether you need
to do anything manually depends on your MTA and how it's configured.

See <https://wiki.list.org/x/12812344>. Also note that the post you're
looking at is 11 years old and is talking about upgrading from 2.1b
(over 14 years old) to 2.1.2 (14 years old).

<http://www.list.org/mailman-install/site-list.html> would probably have
been a better place to look.
