What you are asking is exactly what I am planning on doing here. We
have a mail server (Solaris 8 box) which is currently being used as
mailman's website. What we are going to do is to NFS mount the mailman
directory in our webserver (a Solaris 9 box) so it can be accessed
there. Probably, the best way to do it is kinda like what you infered:
install mailman in the webserver and then automount the data
directories. I'll be playing with that and keep you all posted with my
