You can have Mailman use a non-local SMTP server by adjusting the
Mailman/mm_cfg.py file (see Defaults.py), but it's somewhat annoying
to do this as you will have to copy over the list aliases onto the
mailserver, rather than having the newlist command do so
automagically for you.
I suppose you could do the same for a non-local webserver, but that
would be even more difficult: you'd almost have to set up filesharing
between the two machines so that the list archives and the various
Mailman web resources are available on the webserver.
If you've already got a webserver somewhere that you'd want to use,
you'd be better off running Mailman on there....
