IIRC, Mailman uses mbox for its archives.

The release notes for 11.30 say:

cPanel & WHM 11.30 does not support mbox on Red Hat 6 or CentOS 6 servers.
Warning: In the forthcoming cPanel & WHM 11.32, the mbox format will not be supported on any operating system.
What will be the implications of this for Mailman on 11.32?

I do confirm that Mailman has archives in mbox format per an 11.30.0.25 machine I checked:

Code:
[email protected] [/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/archives/private]# ls -lah
total 32K
drwxrws--x 8 mailman mailman 4.0K May 30 16:13 ./
drwxrwsr-x 4 mailman mailman 4.0K May 26 11:59 ../
drwxrwsr-x 2 mailman mailman 4.0K May 30 16:13 cpacct_testing.foo/
drwxrwsr-x 2 mailman mailman 4.0K May 30 16:13 cpacct_testing.foo.mbox/
drwxrwsr-x 2 mailman mailman 4.0K May 30 16:13 testing_testing.foo/
drwxrwsr-x 2 mailman mailman 4.0K May 30 16:13 testing_testing.foo.mbox/
drwxrwsr-x 2 mailman mailman 4.0K May 26 11:59 mailman/
drwxrwsr-x 2 mailman mailman 4.0K May 26 11:59 mailman.mbox/
I cannot answer your question at this point without further research, but I can confirm that mbox files do exist in the Mailman archives.
