Hi again,
	Seriously, pick any Linux distribution - 
Ubuntu may be a good bet for you as the user 
community is quite good for support.
	Personally, I run Mailman on OSX - it 
took some time for me to get it working, but it 
was actually quite easy once I figured out the 
terminology. I used the Postfix MTA that I 
already ran for Mailman & found it easy enough to 
get it going using that.
	I wrote a guide for setting up Mailman on 
OSX, part of which is contained here:
	Hope this helps you somewhat.


	Bye for now, Terry Allen
