Hi Will:

We are a cpanel host that specializes in Mailman hosting. We have 
clients all the time migrating to our services from various different 
servers and versions and to date we have had no problems in moving them. 
All we ask for is the mbox file that governs their archives and the list 
configuration files that make up their list.

In case you haven't made a firm decision, I recommend checking us out at 
http://www.mailmanhost.com. When choosing any cpanel host that supports 
mailman, make sure that they are actually willing to support mailman AND 
that they are not throttling their smtp servers. A lot of cpanel hosts 
will limit how much email an account can send out per hour and that can 
cripple an active mailman list. Just some thoughts.
