Subject: [Mailman-Users] Is Mailman suitable?

I've been asked to look into mass emailing software for my company. At
present, we use a 3rd party to send html formatted emails to subscribed
users and also offer an unsub link. I did look at Lyris Listmanager
which was good but far too expensive. I need the program to do the
following: send out html formatted emails to a list of subscribed users 
disallow replies to the from email address. 
create an auto unsub manage bounces/ non-deliverables
I'd like to be able to track the messages tho this isn't strictly
I have told my boss that I think postfix + mailman can do this (or at
least the main parts)

Am I right?  I've just installed mailman and am currently configuring
and testing it but don't want to waste my time if it is not suitable. My
main concern is sending out the emails and making sure that this isn't
an address to reply to. 
One other thing:  this will need to work on a network which currently
has an ms exch server handling out two domains; dom1.co.uk dom2.co.uk It
is vital that the email comes from newsletters at dom2.co.uk This is
currently an exch mailbox. thanks
