Mailman can be installed under Solaris in your own virtual domain on
your web host, but it requires (probably root) access to the shell on
the server to do it and to integrate it with the web server and MTA on
the host. I.e. IgLou will probably have to do it for you and will
probably charge you for the installation and maybe for monthly use as
