The directory names must be more than "associated" with a list, each
must *match* the respective list name. Assuming your $filedir_suffix =
"" and you're running 1.94.1, that should do it. Be sure the other files
you place there have read permissions for Mj and the directories have
rwx for Mj (even if Mj isn't archiving the list -- it has to create lock

As for list archives, you should specify (for example) "-f
/usr/local/majordom/archives/example-list/example-list" on the command line for the example-list archive alias.
