Just in cast you want to make note of this or for any future readers who 
are looking for the same thing...the location of mailman under a cPanel 
install is in


After figuring that out running the config_list -o command worked 
perfect.  The only other problem I had was with the list name.  I first 
tried the name if the list without the domain name and it would not 
accept it.  I then tried it with the domain, but also with the @ 
symbol.   That wasn't accepted either.  I then tried using the 
underscore in place of the @ like it is shown in the mailman admin and 
it outputted exactly what I wanted. 

Thanks again for your help.
