i have a tricky problem:

Our mail- and webserver crashed and after a restore apache isn't running
yet - it will still take some time to fix it on the origin server (so
the web-frontend of mailman isn't working)- so we set up apache on a new
The problem is, that after the installation of mailman on the new
machine, mailman logicly looks on the localhost for lists etc.

What I want is (if possible) to use the mailman installation on the new
server, but to take the lists and configs from the origin server - if
this isn't possible - I would try to transfer everything to the new
server - but the problem is that I CAN'T TRANSFER the mailserver!!!

Incoming mails are still recieved by the origin server (postfix) an I
don't know how to tell postfix/mailman that mailman now is on a
different server in the LAN an it has to pass over all mailman commands
to the new server...

Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot!
