[Mailman-Users] Not able to mail or web server from the Mailman host - another idea?

A Mailman newbie here, wondering if my scenario is workable. I've got
Mailman 2.1.1 running well on Mac OS X 10.2. Unfortunately, while I can
serve to the local network, I cannot mail or web serve to the greater
Internet, despite having a routable address there are firewall
restrictions I have no control over.
I've got sendmail using a "smart host" successfully, so Mailman sends
its emails to the the Internet fine. I was considering using fetchmail
to receive emails, but have now discovered that by default, Mailman
sets up mailing lists with some 10 aliases for different tasks. It is a
little silly for me to sign up for another 10 email accounts for every
list I create (even if I only create 3 or so).
Perhaps Majordomo or something else would be more suited to this, but I
was wondering, since most subscribing and unsubscribing will be done
with email commands (since I can't web serve from this computer), if
instead of having different email addresses for different tasks, the
tasks are described by commands in emails to an "admin" address.
Is anyone aware of a setup which might suit my situation?
