Andrew - I am using Plesk, and Mailman does interface with it. I didn't realize this is a customized installation -- good to know. That would certainly change things. Thanks for the suggestion of CPanel, I've worked with it elsewhere and can look into it.

Looking at your host (lists.dionewark.org) seems to suggest you are using Plesk as the control panel, are you using Mailman as part of that?  If so, you will need to discuss this with Plesk, as the Mailman installation is customised as part of the control panel and is not from the stock Mailman distribution.  The CPanel control panel system which is one of Plesk's competitors ships with the latest version of Mailman, so that could be an option if you want to stick to using the control panel, but migration between the control panels may be slightly complex.

Look here:

Is that host doing anything else or is it hosting lists only?
