OS X client or server? Which version? Apple's install or from source?

If it's the out of the box OS X Server version, start the qrunners with 
/usr/share/mailman/bin mailmanctl start. If it's from source, the 
location of the mailman/bin folder is likely to be different.

The Server version should have a Mailman folder in 
/System/Library/StartupItems/ that starts it automatically at boot time. 
You can also create one yourself to run on the OS X client.
