Good. At least you get some owner notifications which means your owner
email is deliverable and processing of Mailman generated noticers is

So you *should* be getting notices.

It will tell you where to find your cPanel Mailman installation, and
will also explain why we are somewhat limited in our ability to help

>Is there anything I may be overlooking?  Would it be possible for me to set up a cron job to send notifications?  Any other suggestions? 

Standard Mailman runs several cron jobs including Mailman's
cron/checkdbs which sends the daily summary of outstanding moderator
requests. Do you get that? If not, what happens if you run
cron/checkdbs manually? Note it has to be run by a user in Mailman's
group in order to access everything it needs.
