I don't know much about this, but I believe there are ways to do this with
Mailman.  You might want to check the archives of the Mailman-users mailing
list (see www.list.org)

This can be done in Mailman, at least in Mailman 2.1.  The password per user
is more difficult, but I saw a question about this recently on the mailing
list, and there were some suggested ways of doing it.
