You don't have to have the MTA on the same machine, you could make this
work over two machines. You will need to run an internal MTA on the
Mailman machine though, like Postfix, then use the outside MTA (OpenBSD)
as the relayhost for the Linux box.

Or do you have specific architecture considerations to take into account
that I'm not thinking about?
