Paraphrasing the website:
Mailman is a mailing list manager (MLM); that is, software to help manage
email discussion lists, much like Majordomo, LISTSERV, and the like.
Unlike most similar products, Mailman gives each mailing list a web page
and allows users to subscribe, unsubscribe, and change their preferences
via the web.  Even a list manager can administer his or her list(s)
entirely via the web.  Mailman integrates many common MLM features,
including web-based archiving (though it also has hooks for external
archivers), mail-to-news gateways, bounce handling, spam prevention,
Majordomo-style email-based list administration, direct SMTP delivery (with
fast bulk mailing), digest delivery, virtual domain support, and more.
Mailman is written mostly in Python (with a smattering of C where necessary
for security purposes), and includes hooks to make it easily scriptable and
extensible.  It is compatible with most web servers and browsers, and most
mail transfer agents (mail servers).  Mailman's documentation may be found on
its website.

Mailman has been installed, but requires further configuration before use!
==========================================
WARNING ATTENTION DANGER ATTENTION WARNING
==========================================
mail/mailman requires proper directory permissions to run; but due to
pkg 1.4.1 or libarchive bugs, directory permissions can not be created
properly.
If you installed mailman with pkg -I, --no-script or --no-install-scripts,
you MUST(!) run the post-install script now, as root:
env "PKG_PREFIX=/usr/local" sh \
/usr/local/mailman/bin/FreeBSD-post-install x POST-INSTALL
==========================================
WARNING ATTENTION DANGER ATTENTION WARNING
==========================================
You will have to configure both your MTA (mail server) and web server to
integrate with Mailman.  If the port's documentation has been installed,
extensive post-installation instructions may be found in:
/usr/local/share/doc/mailman/FreeBSD-post-install-notes
Note (1):  - ESPECIALLY RELEVANT FOR USERS OF THE BINARY PACKAGE -
The FreeBSD binary package is built for use with Sendmail, and it will
not work properly with alternative MTAs such as Exim or Postfix.
In order for Mailman to work with an alternative mailer,
the port must be installed from source, with proper options configured.
The separate poudriere port can be used to locally build a binary
package of Mailman with non-default options.
- FOR USERS OF A PORT BUILT FROM SOURCE -
If you use an alternate MTA (meaning "not Sendmail"), you MUST
be sure that the correct value of MAIL_GID was used when this port or
package was built.  You can choose your MTA with the correct MAIL_GID by
running "make config" in the Mailman port's directory.
Note (2):  The entire Mailman installation resides under /usr/local/mailman.
The command-line scripts necessary to administer Mailman have been
installed in /usr/local/mailman/bin.
Note (3):  As of version 2.1, Mailman's queue runner runs as a daemon and
is started by a script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d
In order to make private archives searchable with namazu2, you need
to copy or link /usr/local/libexec/namazu.cgi to
/usr/local/mailman/archives/private/<ML_name>/ and configure .namazurc.
Refer to /usr/local/etc/namazu/namazurc.sample.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE INFORMATION FOR UPDATES OF 2.1.18/OLDER TO VERSION 2.1.19 AND NEWER:
Changed behavior
- Mailman's log files, request.pck files and heldmsg-* files are no
longer created world readable to protect against access by untrusted
local users.  Note that permissions on existing log files won't be
changed so if you are concerned about this and don't rotate logs or
have a logrotate process that creates new log files instead of letting
Mailman create them, you will need to address that.  (LP: #1327404)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
********************************************************************
The mailman newsyslog.conf(5) filename has been changed:
OLD: /usr/local/etc/newsyslog.conf.d/mailman.newsyslog
NEW: /usr/local/etc/newsyslog.conf.d/mailman.conf
Any file found at the old location has been automatically moved to
the new location. This was done to ensure log rotation continues to
work after change r340318 made to FreeBSD base, where the default
newsyslog configuration now only includes filenames that end with
'.conf' and do not begin with '.'.
If you use provisioning/configuration management tools to create or
edit this file, you will need to change their configuration to use
the new filename.
