What's in /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/* ? There should only be
symlinks to /var/lib/mailman/archives/private/*, not actual content.

Sometimes when moving things, the symlinks in archives/public/ are
followed rather than copied and you wind up with content in the new
archives/public/ which never gets updated.

If this isn't the issue, look in Mailman's error log and maybe run
Mailman's bin/check_perms.
