In your situation, it may make more sense to use a mailing list manager
written to be "driven" from email, such as Majordomo.  Mailman--as a
reaction to the problems some people found with the Majordomo way--was
designed to be driven from the web, with a few email commands tossed in to
make former Majordomo users feel more at home.

After we switched our lists from Majordomo to Mailman, I stopped following
progress--if any--on Majordomo.  There could well be better choices around.
