	We don't run a service.  We're just a bunch of fellow mailing 
list admins at various sites around the world.  If you want a mailman 
hosting service, please see

	Depends on the size of the list, how many users are at which 
sites, how fast those sites are, how fast their networks are, how 
fast your machine is, how fast your network is, if there are any 
problems in the network between your site and their sites, and a 
whole host of other issues.

	That would be up to your provider.

	There is a web administration interface, but if you've got access 
to the command-line, there are also tools you can run there.  But you 
should talk to your hosting provider first.
