I think majordomo2's worth a try. Especially if you do it. ;->
Seriously, the argument in favour in your case is that it's very close
to what you're used to and like.
Back in the 1990s, there were a couple of things lacking in almost all
real-world majordomo installations in my experience:
1. Everyone talked about supplementing the MLM with a Web-archiver
utility, and there were always plans or at least
we-should/somebody-should discussions about adding one, but it never
actually happened. The one most often discussed was MHonArc -- but the
only MHonArc installations you encountered in the real world were ones
where the listadmin had taken the initiative to install/configure it
years ago when majordomo went in or soon thereafter.
2. All the majordomo lists had recurring problems with misdirected
administrivia postings -- either commands to the MLM or (one of the
biggest plagues of the era) 'unsubscribe me' postings.
GNU Mailman, for all that it adds complexity and has some misfeatures
and .db & .pcl binary files, at least makes both those irritants go
away. pipermail's pretty good these days, and the default administrivia
filters auto-redirect almost all administrivia postings from the
clueless into the admin queue instead of blasting it out to the members.
On balance, I thought that was progress. And also, of course, it's open
source and actively maintained.

majordomo does not have internal SMTP, nor to my knowledge does any
