Are you running X-serve or an individual copy of Mac OS X? Mailman is 
installed on the x-serve systems, though I understand it's a pain to 
work with because Apple made some modifications to the source code. As 
for individual systems, I am running Mac OS X 10.3.6 with Postfix 
enabled (using the aptly named Postfix Enabler to turn everything on), 
along with anomy, spamassassin, and Mailman 2.1.5. Installation was 
basically a matter of downloading the package and following 
installation instructions. My lists are small, no more than 200 members 
on any one list, but the system handles everything smoothly and 
invisibly while I continue to work in the foreground. If you have a 
heavier load in mind you should prepare to dedicate a machine. The only 
annoying aspect of the whole setup is that I'm using mail.app to handle 
all my correspondence, and whenever I reply to a list I have to 
remember to switch things around to avoid top-posting.
