The daily summary of moderator requests is sent by a cron, but if a
list's admin_immed_notify is Yes, those notices are sent without help
from cron.

cPanel lists generally use Exim as the MTA and if any delivery tp
Mailman works at all, delivery to LISTNAME-owner generally works, so,
assuming it's not cron, try mailing LISTNAME-owner and see if that gets
delivered to the list's owner and moderator addresses.

My own sanity preserving rules are "I don't work for money" and "I don't
touch your server", at least not in ways that are not available to the

However, I'm more than happy to work with you or InMotion through this
list, but not as a paid consultant. I can't speak for anyone else here.
