    For the list server take a look at Listar (http://www.listar.org/), it is
already packaged for Debian.

    Listar archives into two standard formats, one of which is mbox.  If you
want that available via HTTP take a look at hypermail.  It, too, is packaged.

    As for your security, just make it a closed list requiring authorization
from an admin before people are actually subscribed.
