Sadly, what you want does not exist, which is why you can't find it. 
Mailman does not have any sort of built-in webmail capability. Personally, 
I'd love to see something like that and have been thinking about a solution 
for my server but have not gotten very far with it as I have had other 
things to keep me busy.

I'm sure it can be done, but it could be quite a pain to make it work. Then 
again... I can see a way to use a simple web form and CGI script to do the 
replies and posting.
