[Mailman-Users] migrating lists from one host cPanel to another

Thank you, Mark.  I didn't find anything in those resources exactly 
addressing moving from host to host, both using cPanels.  I'll try calling 
one of the hosting companies again and ask if they'd give me access to what 
I need, if possible.

The process of moving a list from one server to another is normally
straightforward depending of the degree of access you have to the host
servers or the cooperation you can get from the hosting services. See
the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/4030682> and posts linked therefrom
for descriptions.

This may or may not be complicated by the hosts using cPanel. The fact
that both ends are cPanel and the domain name (which is part of the
cPanel list name) is not changing will help. See also the FAQ at
