(I am a newbie and) I have some questions about how Mailman works.

Specifically, how it relates to other pieces of software.  For example,
how does Mailman relate to pieces of software like Sendmail, Qmail,
exim, and PostFix?  In my (probably naive) understanding, these are the actual
Mail Servers.  They are the SMTP server, and the POP3 or IMAP server.
Does Mailman work with these?... as an add-on?  Or does it replace these?

Also, how does Mailman relate to something like Procmail.  (Not that I
completely understand how Procmail works.  But I believe it is an
add-on to Sendmail, that does various kinds of filtering.)
