Yes, but:

  * you'll probably have to crank up the default minimum message
    size, which is 40 kB -- entirely appropriate for most publich
    mailing lists, but probably not for your needs

  * Pipermail -- the default archiver supplied with Mailman --
    doesn't understand MIME.  It just shows the raw MIME message
    bodies, which are interesting, but not what your users
    want.  (And doesn't really take advantage of the web's
    capabilities, alas.)
