And it appears from the # prompt in that window that you have root 
access to the server. This seems to say to me that the host doesn't have 
much of a clue at all about what they are doing.

Your screenshots were removed by the list's content filtering, but I got 
them in off-list mail. The only interesting one is

# ls -l /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman

'x 2 mailman mailman  22 Nov 11 01:37 bin
'x 2 mailman mailman 170 Nov 11 01:37 cgi-bin
'x 2 mailman mailman  21 Nov 11 01:37 mail

Note, this would be much better just copied and pasted into your email 
rather than attached as a screenshot.

Yes, these are normal, but there is much more missing. If this were 
actually a working Mailman installation there would also be archives, 
cron, data, icons, lists, locks, logs, Mailman, messages, pythonlib, 
qfiles, scripts, spam and tests directories in addition to the bin, 
cgi-bin and mail directories that are there.

So basically, Mailman is not really installed in any functional way.
