Hi, this seems like my similar circumstance.
I have a webhosting setup too like you.
Needed to move the list after 4 years to Majordomo unsupported.
After the switch, it was no big deal really,
if you know your Majordomo commands already.
When I did get stuck, it was on permissions & aliases,
and I hired a local UNIX guy $30 hr. to help the setup.
Took him 3 hours, and I've never had a problem since.
The rest I am learning daily.
It doesn't take much time after it's set up.
I would advise to get some Unix books too.
