Yes, you can run multiple Postfix instances on one server (with
different chroots).

I think you'll be happier though if you move Mailman off to a separate
server and run it from there. For bigger corporations I like to run
three mailservers:
  external mail server - spam filtering and initial virus scanning,
  internal mail server - users, distributions, imap, pop, etc 
  Mailman/mail server - (either internal or external) for dynamic lists
and archiving

Good Luck!
