Officially, Brad is correct, but (caveat, I've never verified this) if
you can get the server admin to create the 'mailman' user for you and
ultimately to make a few simple web server config and MTA config
changes, then depending on the MTA, you may be able to do everything
else as the 'mailman' user.
