Sorry if I sounded really down on the RaQ. I'm no Unix guru and I got
mailman working ok - The web-admin still works perfectly well just as it
did before.

The choice is quite straight-forward:

1. If you want a box that's primarily a list-server, with no customer
   web-sites hosted. There is absolutely no reason to go for a RaQ. No
   'configuration wizard' is going to help you there.

2. If on the other hand, you want to host a number of 'virtual domains'
   for lots of different customers (and let them get on with it without
   bothering you) with mailman list-serving as a secondary function - a RaQ
   is still a viable option (if you like that sort of thing).
