For that number of lists, its worth scripting your efforts. Check out the 
contents of $MAILMAN/bin.

For the umbrella lists, make sure you enter the umbrella list address as a 
permitted poster for each of its members.

Make sure that your MTA won't accept email addressed to the lists. Don't 
use mailman "reject" facilities, because that will cause spam messages to 
bounce back to the forged sender address. Mailman "rejects" cause MTA 
bounces, so it is better to reject at the MTA level.
