If you don't have access to the filesystem, you won't be able to move 
the contents of the lists directory.

You could resort to scripting a local machine to visit the 
administrator's web interface and copy all of the subscribers (and 
their settings), and then upload them to your new server.  Some 
examples of this type of scripting are available at:
This only requires that your local machine have Python installed, and 
requires nothing of the servers beyond Mailman.
