I did not suspect that the new service would not have Mailman.  Every web service provider I've been with in years and years has had Mailman.

Hi Tim,

Screenshots of what you are seeing would be helpful. Are you sure 
Mailman is not accessible via cPanel? They are under Mailing Lists in 
the Email section of cPanel. Mailing lists and email accounts are 
treated as separate services on a cPanel server. Also Mailman is not 
available via Softaculous.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for your business. We appreciate our clients.

I am sure that Mailman is not accessible via cPanel.  Screen shot attached. 
Thank you for confirming that Mailman is not available via Softalicious. That helps. 
I opened a support ticket with TMD. The 2 email addresses that were the SendTo addresses for the old Mailman lists were brought over in the transfer. They were invisible to me.  A senior tech deleted them, and created normal email addresses in their place. They recommend I use Roundcube and Contact Groups instead.  That's not a mailing list. If there were a function in Roundcube for "on receipt of new message, send to the Group Contact List", I'd be fine. Minimal but it would work.
