It depends whether you want *all* mail to mailman or just list posts.
If you want all mail including mail to -bounces, -owner -request,
-subscribe, etc., I think doing it in your exim router is the best

If you want only mail to list posting addresses, you can do it easily
in Mailman with a custom handler. See the FAQ at

If this is an archiving application, see the Defaults.py/mm_cfg.py
the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/RAKJ>.
