I think it's very dangerous that you have the power you say/imply you wield
over your systems.
I feel like assisting you, but I'd like to first understand where you are
coming from. Why is it that you want to get rid of Mailman? What has
happened? Why don't you ask the person who set it up to shut it down?
Getting rid of Mailman should be as simple as commenting out a few lines in
the configuration file(s) of the SMTP engine running on your server, then
restarting the SMTP engine. If you don't know how to do that, you really
need to provide more information, and better answers to my foregoing

I can't hear you -- I'm using the scrambler.
