	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 
that method.

	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.
