We do the same with our Groupwise environment and it works just great. Rather get your users to subscribe via the Web interface, or alternatively, generate lists automatically from the NDS using LDAP and the sync_member command from mailman. We automagically generate numerous lists this way each evening. Our directory contains about 25000 users and it works fine.
