withlist is the tool for this. When I get a chance, I will update the
above FAQ with a skeleton framework, but in short you need a withlist
script that imports your handler, reads your message and builds a
Mailman.Message.Message object and calls your handler's process function.

Either is OK.

That's for Mailman 3 and isn't relevant to Mailman 2.1.x.
