Hello MR/MRS/MS.                 ALL  ,

I'm converting an old, crufty, proprietary, long-lived mailinglist to
Mailman. Mailman doesn't provide one nifty feature this old (practically
security-free) package does: a web interface to list contents (reply and
post, as well as read).

(Many users do not have computers capable of, or are uncomfortable with,
substantial email handling. They're smart and techie, just not in
computing/networking. You can skip the obvious 'upgrade!' remarks, I've
heard 'em all already.)

Generic "webmail" bolted to a single Mailman list, on the host machine,
authenticating from MM's cleartext password, would be perfect. Only
read, reply, post, search are needed; delete, save, other
mailbox-management tools are not needed.

Such a thing seems "obvious" but I can't find it, I could simply be
using the wrong search terms (or paradigm).

Before I go hack an existing webmail package, does such a thing already
exist? I've cobbled up a post module, authing from the MM file, but I'm
terribly lazy.
