FAQ
Recently, Mailman stopped delivering messages to list members,
administrators etc.

The messages are archived just fine, I can browse them in a web
interface, but it looks like Mailman does not want to deliver any
message any more.


There is nothing interesting in Mailman logs, nothing in mail server logs.

The server had a crash recently, but everything else works just fine and
I have really no idea what should I look for.

Any clues?

    Is OutgoingRunner running? Are the messages queued in qfiles/out/ ?

    OutgoingRunner was running, and there were messages in qfiles/out. Other
    points from that FAQ entry didn't apply much as well.

    Simply restarting Mailman helped (why didn't I do it in the first place?
    I guess I'm just not accustomed to restarting), but I'm still not sure
    of the reason it stopped delivering messages.

    Thanks for help.

    If there were messages in qfiles/out/, but they weren't being picked up
    by OutgoingRunner, OutgoingRunner was in some funny state or it may
    have been hung waiting for a low level SMTP response.

    Simply restarting Mailman helped (why didn't I do it in the first place?
    I guess I'm just not accustomed to restarting), but I'm still not sure

    For whatever reason, OoutgongRunner wasn't doing its job. Restarting
    Mailman got it going again. Possibly something as simple as sending it
    a SIGHUP would have started it too.
