Your MTA is adding this header containing all the recipients in the
particular SMTP transaction that delivered this message from Mailman to
the MTA.

You need access to the installation to do anything about this. If this
is a hosted Mailman, you'll have to deal with the host.

There are two ways to fix this.

1) fix the MTA, probably exim in cPanel,

2) change Mailman to send only one recipient per transaction. This can
be accomplished in multiple ways:
  a) If personalize is available in Non-Digest options, set it to Yes.
  b) add
     to mm_cfg.py
  c) add
     to mm_cfg.py

(I recommend b)
