[Mailman-Users] Mailman on Solaris-based web server

I am curious whether Mailman will work on Solaris, and how best to  
integrate it with our current web site. Our school maintains an  
informational website at www.stfrancishighschool.com, hosted by IgLou in  
Louisville. We have been discussing with a few alumni the possibility of  
creating mailing lists for the alums, and Mailman seems like a good  
solution. We have also looked into Majordomo, which IgLou will administer  
for additional monthly charges. We would like to save money.

Can Mailman be installed alongside our website? In other words, is it self  
contained? Can its bin and lib files, for example, be installed in our web  
directory, and still allow Mailman to function?

Our other possible solution is to host the mailing lists on one of our own  
Linux servers, if the app cannot be installed on our host's server. Since  
we run Exchange Server, I am trying to simplify matters by hosting the  
mailing lists offsite, though.

Thanks for your help.
