It's not the normal way.

,----[ Mailman's .fetchmailrc ]
| poll server proto pop3
|      user curso_linux pass xxx is curso_linux
|      user curso_linux-admin pass xxx is curso_linux-admin
|      user curso_linux-request pass xxx is curso_linux-request

,----[ add to mailman's crontab ]
| * * * * * /path/to/fetchmail -a

Did you have read the INSTALL?

For example this mail address is used for monthly password reminder.

I think you can use any other mail address. You can configure it in
$MAILMANHOME/Mailman/mm_cfg.py. There is a line with

| MAILMAN_OWNER = 'mailman-owner@%s' % DEFAULT_HOST_NAME

Change "mailman-owner" to whatever you want.

Also not testet!

My mailman version is 2.0.5.
