There are a couple of techy ways you could do this:

- Point the hosts file at the relevant IP address of the web server you use to manage the domain/Mailman setup, then point a web browser at it.  It should work locally.

- If you have a local DNS server, and you know the authoritative DNS servers provided by the original web host, create a stub zone with the relevant NS records pointing to those nameservers.  When a client using that nameserver tries to resolve the relevant domain name, the DNS resolver should look up and return the records from the old webhost.
