  Top posting my reply, hope this is OK.  Oddly, my host included a Terminal window! I have never seen that before. Attached are screen shots of some ls -l results. 
Mark are these normal for a mailman installation?
I think my host does not want to support Mailman. Maybe new accounts aren't getting it in cPanel but the program is still on my server to support legacy accounts that are still using it. 
And yes, I replied to Brian, with screen shots.

/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman is in the server's file system, but 
it is not somethin that users on a shared cPanel host have access to.

I doubt it, although I suppose it's possible that the host disabled it. 
But then, the fact that cPanel thinks your list address exist seems to 
say your list is at least partially there.

This is an issue that your hosting provider needs to resolve, but if 
they are like a lot of cPanel hosts, Mailman is only there because it 
comes with cPanel and they aren't interested in supporting it.

Brian is an exception. See his post at 
and follow up with him.
