I've done hybrid version of this where the mailman box is its own MTA
to sending out mailman messages.  But set the reply-to to the original
exchange's SMTP address listed in the Global Addressbook.

Outgoing emails go out from mailman.  Incoming emails route back in
through exchange.

Exchange server also have SMTP connectors and aliases that match the
mailman aliases (-admin, -bounces, -confirm, etc).
