I'm looking for a new server to host a few mailing lists.

I am a list-owner of several popular science discussion lists (about
meteorities, mineralogy, chemistry, mushrooms, and LexOS project (law open
source)). The server pengus.net where my lists are hosted is going to be
decommisioned. Therefore I am looking for a new server for my lists.
If you could host my lists (all or some of them at least) along with their
web pages free of charge I would be most grateful.
I would need the Mailman program (http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/ )
to be installed on your server (if you still haven't one installed), and
to have a full access under the shell to the mailman directory (in order
to run mailman commands to reformat lists archives etc.).
Because the lists are quite specialist, there is no high volume of
messages sent and therefore there is no high load for processor or high
bandwidth usage. Thus even servers with 486 type processor with slow
connection to internet would be fine for the lists.
It's hard for me to offer something in exchange for your kindness (apart
perhaps from a note on the lists web pages that you host them, if you
would like to advertise your server). I just hope that some of you would
think that it would be good if those list would still exist and not just
vanish along with the current server.
If you'd like to help please contact me to the e-mail:
minerals-owner [at] list.pengus.net
Thank you very much indeed in advance!
