I don't think this is possible with Mailman, but it is worth checking.

We have a database of customers.  Each customer can have different types of
services.  We often want to send an email out to all of the customers that
have a particular service, but not the customers that do not have that

Right now, we have multiple Mailman mailing lists.  One for all customers.
One for customers that have the XYZ service.  One for customers that have
the ABC service.  Many customers are on multiple lists.

Managing all of these lists is extremely cumbersome.  Customers can add and
remove services at any time.  We then have to manually add and remove them
from the appropriate mailing lists.

Any suggestions on how to manage this better?  We are considering just
adding a mailing feature to our database application and not using a mailing
list.  But that might not be very efficient.
