You can configure /etc/mail/aliases.  However, this provides for one-way
aliases only (outbound), unless the sending box is generally reachable.
E.g.:  most dialup boxen aren't mailservers.

If you have access to a server, mailman is a good list management
server, recommended.

There are also a large number of sites which will host your discussion
for you.  For an academic group, I'd think this would be available
through your school.
