A few months ago, I started hosting the bogofilter mailing lists.  They
had been hosted elsewhere using qmail and ezmlm.  Given subscriber
lists, I was able to use mailman's add_members commands.  With separate
lists of regular and digest subscribers (and the corresponding '-r' and
'-d' options) and the "--welcome-msg=n" option, I was able to subscribe
everyone without any need for action by the individual subscribers.

The use of MUA is much a matter of operating system used and individual
preference.  I've been using Sylpheed-Claws under Linux for the past
year and like its GUI.  I understand it's also available for Windoze.
