Two cheers for *you* mate!  Simon's advice is right on.  You'll find
Postfix integrates nicely with Mailman.

In the Mailman docs you should find safely nestled away a README.POSTFIX
file.  Read it.  Everything you need to know to get Postfix working with
Mailman is in that doc.

As for Fetchmail, who could do better than *the man* himself... Eric

Good Luck - Jon Carnes
