	You should search the archives.  This subject has come up several 
times before.

	The short answer is no.  The long answer is quite a bit more 
complex, and for many sites it may be completely impossible to 
implement this kind of functionality, even if the feature were 
technically available within Mailman.

	If you want that sort of thing, you should use a file sharing P2P 
network, or a WebDAV server, etc....
