I guess I had better refund all those folks I have taken money from to
support Mailman, then.

Mr. (Anonymous) Support Desk, you are wrong sir.

This is wrong.  I've been installing Mailman on-site and over the wire
for a couple of years now.  Many clients love the flexibility of having
their own Mailman server on-site, without having to pay monthly for
hosting services.

And to clear up another myth, it works great over cable modems & DSL. 
You just need to make sure you have one or two backup MX's that are not
on the same broadband carrier.
