This works fine for outgoing mail. Incoming mail is trickier. You have
to use something like fetchmail or some other process to get the mail
from the incoming MTA to mailman (Maybe NFS can be used, but I don't
offhand know if anyone has done this). Search the archives of this
for discussions of this.
