    Look for a lock file on the system. It ought to be in the same directory where it's creating the html files into. Also, you may want to try and run it manually and see what it does. It might tell you what it's doing, if it crashed, or something.

    Upon first installing hypermail, you do need to manually create one. A good template to start with is obtainable by typing 'hypermail -v > hypermail.cfg', then edit that hypermail.cfg file and set your own settings. When you run hypermail, you can then specify which config file to use with the -c option.
