The FAQ has been moved.  We need to clean up those old links.  The new 
location for the FAQ is 
<http://wiki.list.org/display/DOC/Frequently+Asked+Questions>.  If you 
use the search function for "personalization", you should have the 
answer as it applies to the standard version of Mailman as we provide 
from <http://www.list.org/download.html>.

However, note that cPanel has made some changes to the code they ship. 
See FAQ 6.11 at <http://wiki.list.org/x/sYA9> for more information.

That's really a question you need to be asking your service provider. 
They're the ones who installed cPanel, and they should have those 
answers for you.

I will tell you this -- I don't think you're going to handle anywhere 
remotely close to the number of users you're talking about with a cPanel 
installation.  If you want to get those levels of performance, you're 
going to need a more customized installation and you're going to need to 
have full privileged access to the server and the MTA, as well as full 
site admin access.

Either that, or a service provider who is willing and able to do all 
these things for you -- and anyone running cPanel is highly unlikely to 
fit into that picture.
