On any *nix machine of your choice (well, OK - pick one that's always on,
like, say, the mailman server), use `crontab -e` to add a line to your
crontab that looks something like

0 0 1 * * /usr/bin/mail mylist at domain.net -s "Monthly reminder" < /path/to/reminder-message.txt

Granted, it's not really a mailman-based solution, but it's probably the most
straightforward way to do it.
