Option #2 would probably be closest, but what you'd have to do is to
set up the ten aliases needed for each list to be forwarded to a
local program on the machine. If your hosting provider doesn't allow
that, then you can't use their interface to set up aliases.
If your provider is using an MTA like postfix, with the right options
specified in the Mailman configuration file then you can use
mechanisms built into Mailman that can automatically generate the
necessary aliases for you, and postfix will automatically pick up
those changes on-the-fly. However, this also requires modification
to the postfix configuration files, and if your provider doesn't
allow that, then obviously this won't be an option for you.
In short, you really need to talk to your provider.
Moreover, this doesn't have anything to do with MX records, so the
subject is misleading.
