Thank you everyone for your input.  A dear gentleman from cPanel tech support was able to figure it out for me and it is now working.

Please see <https://wiki.list.org/DOC/Mailman%20is%20not%20Listserv>.

So there seems to be some issue with outgoing mail delivery from Mailman
to external addresses. The mail reaches Mailman because it is archived.
Is mail from others delivered to mary at christiangays.com?

These PHP errors are irrelevant. They may have something to do with
Wordpress?? The logs you want to look at are the MTA (probably Exim in
cPanel) logs and Mailman's logs (in
/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/logs in standard cPanel).

Does this mean you've seen
<https://wiki.list.org/DOC/Mailman%20and%20CPanel> and

My two rules are "I don't work for money." and "I don't touch your
server." and in any case, I'm going to be unavailable for even what
support I normally provide via this list for the next 6 weeks.

I hope someone else on this list can help you.
