Wait for Mailman 3.

by 'connect' it's possible to subscribe the address of a google group
to Mailman. Although I'd see that as duplicious, and if there are
subscribers to the google-group, keeping posts (and perhaps
memberships) in sync might be a little effort.

there's probably an email -> rss CPAN module. YMMV (I don't use RSS

It's not really worth encrypting the web-traffic if you won't be
encrypting the mail. Why would you want to use SSL?

Read the docs.

Ask CPanel: search other list-posts from this week (and others)
regarding CPanel's reluctance to open-up their modifications to 
their code.

Depends on:
    *   the configuration of the machine; 
    *   what else is running on the machine; 
    *   how much mail you'll be sending;
    *   if you're going to be handling things to counter 
        spam, virus-laden mails, poor MIME types;
    *   hits to the httpd;
    *   and a variety of other factors.

Read the Docs. (bin/newlist is one way)

``No, we vote Conservative.''  (Simon Hoggart, interviewing a middle-class
