So the host is providing Mailman hosting that doesn't work and when you
complain the host blames the software which it provides.

The only option you have to configure mailman to send individual
messages is, if the host allows it, to set Non-digest options ->
personalize to Yes. If this setting does not appear as the second item
on the Non-digest options page, then the Mailman installation doesn't
allow it.

The other way to send individual messages is VERP like delivery, but
this is completely controlled by the host.
