You need to ask the host to run Mailman's bin/check_perms (probably
/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/bin/check_perms) as root with the
'-f' option. That should fix most permission problems.

They also should look at Mailman's error log (probably
/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/logs/error) and see what the actual
problems are because other fixes may be needed.

If they need help, they should come here directly rather than using you
as an intermediary.
