Yes, I would recommend for smaller project-specific mailing lists that
you take advantage of the community server which is set up for this
purpose. We provide code hosting, project webspace, shell access, trac
instances and mailing lists. You can pick and choose, you don't need to
use all of them.

See http://community.haskell.org/
