As a veteran of a Macjordomo to Mailman switch, I can testify to how 
much you will appreciate Mailman once you get it running. It's not 
really all that difficult to install and set up on OS X, even if you 
have no Unix/Linux experience. See the article at 
http://www.afp548.com/Articles/Jaguar/mailman21-new.html for very good 
basic step by step instructions.

Further instructions are included in the source tarball.
