I've CCed you.  I wonder why mail from the mailing list is taking so long.

Sounds like you will be happier having your mailing lists be in a 
sub-domain of their own rather than having to involve the Exchange admin 
every time you want to add or remove or rename a mailing list.  Thus you 
will need to have a sub-domain routed to you by the Exchange server.

You lucky ... person!  You don't have to administer the Exchange system 
your self.  Good for you.

I /think/ that is Exchange 2007, but I'm not sure.  As such I won't be 
able to offer any insight on how to get Exchange to route a sub-domain 
to your Solaris Mailman server.  So, you and your Exchange admin are on 
your own for that one.

I think I've been running on an assumption here based on the fact that 
you are trying to get things to work with Exchange.  Will your 
(sub)domain for your mailing lists have to pass through Exchange or can 
you have MX records reference your Mailman server directly?  What are 
you doing with the Ecartis MLM that is being replaced?  I would think 
that mail for Mailman would be handled very similarly as Ecartis.
