After going through all of that it hit me earlier how it worked. I have been 
using PMDF's mailing list software and it works a little different.  You have 
a list of addresses that the messages are to be sent to and then a separate 
list of addresses for people who can post. Then a configuration on if people 
can subscribe themself or not. 

That brings me to another migration issue. We have about 600 lists or so that 
are created automatically every semester (university environment) for classes 
and then some that is for all students student organizations and students 
faculty etc etc. Since the list is just a plain text file with email 
addresses they are created via a script and ftp to the VMS server running 
PMDF overwriting the old lists. I have looked at the mailman config files and 
it's a mess. Is there a way to do a similar kind of thing with mailman as in 
having the members in a separate file than the list configuration file. Or 
some solution for automation of list creation.
