 A quick google turns up the following : https://github.com/snltd/smf/blob/master/manifest/mailman.xml

It looks (at a brief glance) like it'd work pretty much straight out of the box although you will probably have to change exec line so that it calls mailmanctrl rather than mailman.sh as it does. You'll probably also want to change the dependency 'name' for your MTA as the one you're using will probably differ from svc:/snltd/exim:default.. or you could always just drop the requirement to have mailman's operation 'dependent' on the state of your system's MTA.

I quite like this SMF xml for mailman as it lists filesystem, network, MTA and name services as 'dependencies' so in a way it should check that all the daemons needed for a healthy mailing list service are running.

Anyway it looks like a pretty good place to start. Good luck.
