A normal Mailman 2.1.5 installation incudes a pythonlib/ directory
which in turn contains the email 2.5.5 Python email package. The cron/
and bin/ directories contain a paths.py module which is imported by
the various scripts in those directories and which sets sys.path so
that the email package used is the one in pythonlib/.

The above warning indicates that something is missing from the above
scenario and you are getting the email 3.0.1 package from the Python
2.4.3 installation.
