It's not "MailMan".  It's "Mailman".

Configuration-wise, it's about as simple to configure as you can get. 
You need to tell it what kind of mail server you're using, what 
hostname and domains it's going to serve, and most everything else 
can probably be taken from the built-in defaults.  In many cases, all 
you'll need to add or change is about five lines in mm_cfg.py:

	MTA = 'Postfix'
	DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'lists.example.com'
	DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'lists.example.com'
	DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'https://%s/mailman/'
	add_virtualhost('lists.example.com', 'lists.example.com')

It doesn't get much simpler than that.
