Mailman is probably overkill for what you need, since its main purpose
is managing list memberships and (I guess) maintaining archives. But
if the engine is running off your laptop, the latter doesn't do you
any good, and not much good for the former- users won't receive timely
feedback to emailed requests, and the web interface won't be

So, a small script will probably do what you want.
Or, keep the list of addresses in a text file, and paste them into the
'To:' field each time.

That said, gmail itself supports 'groups' (refer to the 'Contacts'
link in the web interface), and any e-mail client worh its salt ought
to have some sort of rudimentary group functionality.
