Mailman is kind of the defacto standard list manager these days, indeed,
this centos list is managed by it.
the project site is http://www.list.org/ with the documentation and such.
its in the EL5 and I assume EL6 standard repositories, so...
yum install mailman
suffices to install it and set it up. it uses a service called,
chkconfig mailman on
service mailman start
except I think the installation does this automatically.
oddly, In the rhel/centos install, all the management tools are in
/usr/lib/mailman/bin/ which isn't in the normal path, but you only need
these to create new lists and such, pretty much everything else is done
through a simple web interface..
the web interface for users and list moderators will default to
http://yourhost.domain.com/mailman/listinfo if you don't dink around
with vhost records.
