Hi Malcolm:

Your cPanel provider should run the following commands on the server:


That will typically fix most list permissions. For some reasons, files
within the 'listname'/en directory gets their permissions screwed up. I ran
into this several times after migrating our own mailman hosting clients to
new mailman servers.
