I have been told that Mailman can not reside in one server while the website associated with the domain it uses resides in another. In my case the domain.com website is hosted by one service while the Mailman list and a few e-mail associated with the domain (info at domain.com and admin at domain.com) are hosted by another service (by service I mean different servers in different geographical locations).

You should be able to place the interface at something list


Because the mailman interface code resides with the mail processing
code, and they need to share data, they really need to be on the same
machine. They do NOT need to be on the same domain. I have a mailman
list running on a shared mailing-list host, but the lists email address
reference a domain that is hosted on a different machine, the domains
are different.
