While this is theoretically possible ('all' the mailman executables
need is to be able to access the configuration files and access the
qfiles), you're basically just installing mailman on your mail server,
with extra, needless, layers of complexity.

The best way, really, to do this is to either (a) use fetchmail, or
(b) set up your real mail server to forward the appropriate mail
(i.e., the mailman messages) to the MTA on the mailman machine. (a)
will be simpler, maybe (I've never actually done that.) (b) seems like
a 'better' solution, to me.
