	If you have access to the server, you can run various log 
processing scripts which can create this kind of information.  If you 
use postfix as your MTA, check out a tool called "pflogsumm". 
Another good tool to look at is "lire" from logreport.org.

	That's going to be much more difficult.  Mailman doesn't do any 
log processing of this sort, and it doesn't have any statistics 
gathering/reporting features I am aware of.
