Move providers to someone who can sort your needs.

I run my own boxes, some hosted with Mythic Beasts (in Cambridge),
some elsewhere.

Mythic offer shell-accounts (which may be all you need), with
Mailman offerings as add-ons. See
(they also have a referral scheme...).

(or you might find one of their VPSes sufficient for your needs;
although on a recent look, Bytemark offer more bits-for-your-bucks.)
