The list grinded to a halt on august 09 & revived on the 24th of last month.
There was a large ammount of stale email addersses in the members list 
so though the server was revived the invalid addresses were causing 
message delivery attempts to fail due to too many errors & the self 
maintaining bounce mechanism wasn't able to run properly to prune 
addresses. I've been clearing the invalid addresses from the members 
list for the past few days & all is well now.
