OK. I've tested this now with Mailman 2.1.9+ with the same result,
namely an urgent message is sent to all list members regardless of
delivery status, regular/digest or other filters.

Thus, not sending urgent messages to delivery disabled members in your
case is most likely a cPanel 'feature'. See

In any case, it seems that using the Urgent: header for these kinds of
messages is still a good solution for you as your Topics method didn't
deliver to delivery disabled members either, nor did it deliver
immediately to digest members, and the Urgent: header avoids the reply
problem with topics.
