I don't have direct experience with cPanel, but there are a number of
hosting services that provide Mailman via cPanel, and as far as I know,
this is not a systemic problem.

As I tried to indicate in my earlier reply at
this is an Exim issue. I'm certain that the Exim configuration on the
host server can be tuned so this is not a problem. If your hosting
provider is unable or unwilling to do this, you should investigate other
hosting services.

Also, please see the next to last paragraph in my earlier reply for
specific information about what the host can do.
