Mailman sure is overkill for that; what functionality are you looking
for that can't be addressed with a simple sendmail alias?

Not that I know of, but it should be pointed out that sending to
the list is surely pretty easy to do...if you're worried about having
the list duplicate messages sent to it because you don't want
members replying, make it a 'moderated' list where only you are
permitted to post.

2.x has a "set Reply-To" feature, although Reply-To is deprecated.
But again, a sendmail alias sounds a lot more like what you're
after.  What of Mailman do you believe you need?
