Web hosting is not the same as mail hosting (is it?). For majordomo,
you need shell
or at least editor access to make modifications to the /etc/aliases file
as you create your
mailing list(s). With ftp access, you might be able to find
work-arounds, but each time
you send/modify this file, a shell command must be executed to make the
active. I doubt very highly that you will be able to run majordomo on
based on the information you provided.
