You need to configure:
 + Apache
 + exim
 + a new list


You need to configure Apache to see it, if it's not already (it's been a
while since I installed Debian's mailman so it might do it for you).

I have made a file, /etc/apache/mailman.conf that I "Include
/etc/apache/mailman.conf" in httpd.conf for any vhost that uses it,

  # mailman aliases

  Alias /mail/ /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/
  ScriptAlias /mailman/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman/

  <Directory /var/lib/mailman/archives/>
          AllowOverride All

Restart Apache and then try, for example,


Of course, you'll need a list created by

  # newlist mailmantest

(or whatever you'd like to call it.)

You'll also need to hook it into exim. This doc ought to help,


HTH, (comments/improvements welcome!)
