In theory, yes.

The Mailman developers have done a lot of work to try to make Mailman
as NFS-safe as possible. However, any time you introduce NFS into
this kind of a system, there are going to be a number of additional
issues you may face which otherwise might not have been a problem.
Mailman has tools that you can use to try to help diagnose such
problems -- specicially the command-line program "check_perms". See
FAQ 4.9 and the site admin documentation for more information.
