Have you definitely decided against or aren't allowed to pay another
provider for Mailman (or switch entirely to another provider)? 100
subscribers is an arbitary limit: Mailman itself can easily do many
thousands, so the 100 subscribers is definitely a provider enforced
limit and it won't be enforced by every provider.

When you say 'handle' do you mean just being able to send HTML mail on,
or does it need to archive it well or other things?

Check Ecartis as a possible alternative: http://www.ecartis.org/
