I also know I can comment out the cron entry for mailpasswd to stop it for all lists. In addition, I know I can send reminders using mailpasswd to a specific list(s). But, can I exclude sending reminders to specifics lists with mailpasswd. What I would like to do is send the normal monthly reminders to most of our lists. There is a small group of lists that I want reminders to be sent to but on a quarterly/yearly basis instead.

I don't recommend the hack away with eyes closed method, but it
shouldn't be too difficult to add a -x/--exclude option to mailpasswds.
On the other hand you could do something like
for list in `/path/to/bin/list_lists --bare` ; do
for xlist in $excludes ; do
if [ $list == $xlist ] ; then skip=1 ; fi
if [ $skip == 0 ] ; then
/path/to/cron/mailpasswds -l $list
