It is going to be hard for us to help because this is a cPanel Mailman
(see the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/sYA9>). You will probably have
to get any needed help from hostgator.

If you have successfully created a list via cPanel (I don't know how
that is done), your list has two names. One name is used for posting,
etc. Let's say for this discussion that that name is mylist as in
mylist at tierockies.org. There is also a cPanel name which is used in
the web interface. This name in this example is mylist_tierockies.org.

So, the web admin interface for this example list is at

Try that, using the actual list name you created in place of 'mylist'.

Some documentation is at <http://www.list.org/docs.html> or
<http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/docs.html>, but some of this is
incomplete and may not apply to cPanel.
