Hi Carlos:

Just to let you know we fully support mailman and have been doing so for
years now. We also have a knowledgeable php programmer on staff who has
developed some custom applications to work with mailman. Our programming
service is not free but we do offer reasonable rates. You can read more
about our mailman services at http://www.emwd.com/mailman.html. We are also
listed in the URL of mailman hosting providers that Brad has provided.

Kind regards,
Brian Carpenter
EMWD -  Executive Officer

Mailman is not designed to be used in a hosted 
environment without the host providing local 
support for their users.  If your hosting 
provider is not providing support, then you've 
got the wrong hosting provider.

The primary intended environment for Mailman is 
where you own the entire machine (or you 
effectively own it through a lease), and you've 
got full privileged access to all the affected 
systems.  There's lots of stuff that will 
probably need to be done on a periodic or ad-hoc 
basis to support the system, and some of those 
things require this level of access.  Therefore, 
if you try to use Mailman outside of this 
environment, you are then completely dependant on 
the hosting provider.

If you want to look for a more friendly provider, 
take a look at the Mailman FAQ Wizard page at
