If the host is willing to move your archives then they can do the same for
your lists. This is what you do:

1. Log into cPanel

2. Create the lists that you are migrating over.

3. Contact the host and ask them to overwrite those list directories that
cPanel created with your back ups. It takes a few minutes to do that. Make
sure they run /scripts/fixmailinglistperms on each list after they do that.
