As long as it is Mac OS X, it is possible, even with a non-Intel
processor. See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/O4A9>.

Also see the installation manual at

In general you also need a fixed IP address with a domain name and
proper reverse DNS in order to be able to reliably send mail. However,
if you are using this for an outgoing newsletter only, it is possible
to set up and use Mailman without a web server and without incoming
mail and with outgoing mail going through your ISP, although the ISP
may limit how much mail you can send. In this environment, you would
have to interact with Mailman entirely via 'terminal', and it would
probably be just as easy to send your newsletter as an ordinary email
with Bcc: to the recipients.
