I do this too - it works great - especially as I use kmail and can't stand
I go with most of the caveats in the above post - just two more
Careful with mailman - it lets you add the mailing list ID into the subject
area of each post - careful when posting back to the list, and
Careful with archiving - I discovered that mailman was archiving all the posts
to the newsgroup - which was great until I realised it was taking up disk
space and I could see any obvious way to purge the archive.
