Presumably because Mailman under Plesk is configured to do that.  But 
for more information on that subject, you need to talk to your Plesk 
administrators or your service provider.  We can't help you with any 
issues that relate to Plesk.

See <http://wiki.list.org/display/DOC/Mailman+and+Plesk> for more info 
on this subject.

Talk to your Plesk administrator and get them to turn off this function?

Set up a cron job to periodically purge this directory?
