I set mine up last month and used Fetchmail to pull the messages from 
remote mailboxes and dump them into Mailman.  It's working great.

I set up Postfix on the host machine but turned off SMTP access from 
anything but localhost.  I suspect I could probably eliminate Postfix 
entirely and simply relay from Mailman to a smarthost, but I haven't 
gotten to that yet.
