If you are installing via source (Kudos!) then the readmes will do a
great job of walking you through it.
I recommend that you use Postfix as the MTA and follow the
POSTFIX.README. This will integrate your list creation very nicely!
Also, since you are installing from source, look up the htdig patches
and install those before you crank on the final make. You'll have to
install htdig before installing Mailman, but it makes all the archives
easily searchable - a definite plus.
Good Luck - Jon Carnes
