	I think that would probably be one of the easiest configurations, yes.

	The Mailman machine handles it's own incoming mail.  The other 
machine is used just for outgoing mail.  At least, that's the easy 
way to do it.

	If the one outgoing-only machine turns out not to be sufficient, 
it's easy enough to set up additional outgoing-only machines and to 
pass traffic off to the set of outgoing-only machines through some 
sort of round-robin or other load-balancing technique.
