    I have recently transferred about 65 accounts from one cpanel box to another. Most everything went smooth, but I see that the mailing lists were not transferred.

    How can I copy these to the new server?

    cPanel backup should include mailing lists as well. You can open a ticket with cPanel support regarding this. The main files/folders to transfer are 'archives' and 'lists' folders in /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman and the /etc/valiases/domain.tld file for all domains that have the lists. There must be other ways too, I would recommend you open a ticket with cPanel at http://tickets.cPanel.net/submit to be on the safe side and get it fixed permanently. I did open a ticket once regarding the same issue in early days of cPanel 11.24 and they said they had reported it to their developers via an internal bug report. Guess its still not fixed :(
