Since you have the config.pck, if it is not corrupt in some way, you
should be able to 'drop it into' the Mailman installation on the new
server. There may be issues if the new server is not cPanel, but you
may be able to run bin/list_members on one of the servers.

See the cPanel FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/sYA9> and the moving
lists FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/2oA9>.
