You need to be sure that the $filedir, $filedir_suffix, and
@archive_dirs variables in your majordomo.cf file all agree. I'm
$filedir = "/usr/local/lib/majordomo/archives";
$filedir_suffix = ".archive";
@archive_dirs = ("$filedir/testlist$filedir_suffix");
Or even better:
@archive_dirs = < $filedir/*$filedir_suffix >;
The latter setting will pick up any new archive directories, but the
former must be updated to add each new archive directory.
