[Mailman-Users] Internal web pages vs external email users

The best solution I can think of using the current version of Mailman is to
make two list - one for external folks and one for internal folks.  Set up
the lists separately so that the http info makes it to your internal folks
and nothing goes out to the external folks.  In your aliases file set email
to go to both lists (whether email is sent to the internal or external

I would use two list names with slight changes, like: my_list and my-list

BTW, you could always put up a redirect on an external server to allow folks
access to the internal webpages, then setup an htaccess file so that local
request are allowed with no authentication, but requests from the redirect
must login.  If you like, you can even make the authentication the same as
that used by mailman...   Just a thought!
