Stephen has already given good info and I cant add any more detail about
that except to say that you might be able to relay in sendmail on the
main MX via either aliases or a 'relay domain', but I don't know exactly
how to configure it.

There is another approach which is to use NFS or something similar to
share files between hosts. The web server would need to share all of
$prefix/Mailman and all of $var_prefix. The MTA would need only the
$prefix/mail/mailman wrapper and $var_prefix/qfiles, but proxying and
mail relaying might actually be simpler.
