Are you migrating from cPanel to non-cPanel? If not, "A" had some other
patched Mailman. See the FAQ at <> for why I can't be of much help,
but one thing you could try is instead of turning off
require_explicit_destination, add "listname at domain.com" to

You could also try dumping the configuration on the new server with
bin/config_list -o and editing any "listname__domain.com" entries you
find to just "listname" and then applying the edited settings with
bin/config_list -i.
