Hi Amit:

You will not be able to use that mailman list with Hostgator due to 
their email limits. I recommend you to check out our mailman hosting 
services at http://www.mailmanhost.com. We have a number of clients from 
Hostgator and Bluehost who use us to host their mailman lists since we 
do not impose any limits on our mailman clients.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
