Mailman was never intended to be a webmail system. It was never
intended to be a web forum system. However, there are some patches
floating around that you could use to integrate Mailman with a number
of different web forum systems, if you have users that would prefer
Integrating with a webmail system would probably be a bit more
work, since there's really not much on the Mailman side of things to
be done -- it's mostly just setting up a webmail server and giving
people a way to sign up for accounts, then giving them a way to use
those accounts to send e-mail to the mailing lists you host -- which
could just as easily be on a totally different machine.
