Mailman can't be administered effectively by email. It can be
administered without a web server by a combination of email and
command line tools, but not by email alone.

List owners/moderators can approve or discard held posts and held
(un)subscribe requests by email, but that's about it. Other list admin
tasks require a web interface or shell access with write permission to
the Mailman installation.
