Yes and No. If you want a fully integrated mail list, you'll have to edit
python scripts. For some reason the developers havn't templated the entire
system, just a few special pages. There is also no native support for CSS.

There is a mass-subscribe feature, which I havn't yet used, but plan to on
about 50K emails. If you can get your addresses into a text file with one
email per line, you should be good to go.

No clue. Are you not running this on your own server?

I'm converting OUT of ezmlm, which is a qmail-compatible email list
software. If you're not adminning your own server, though, forget that ;)
