A mailbox listserver? What? Do you want a mail client like Outlook
It's very obvious to me that you don't have a clue what you want if you
can't supply the correct name of the mail client you use.

So you want a mailing list server? That's essentially what feature 1 is
doing. Although, there's absolutely no reason why you can't setup a
rule or filter to automatically forward any message you receive to a
distribution list (or group) that includes everyone you have in your
address book. But God only knows why you'd want to do that.

Okay, you're wanting something like mailman. MajorDomo works as well,
but I've used Mailman for years and am very comfortable with it.

Modify Evolution to be a listserver? Not bloody likely, it's not
designed for that. Although you can setup the rule to satisfy feature

Um, your server, whatever it is, is going to have to be public in some
form or fashion. It's got to be accessible to the internet to do this
correctly (unless this is a LAN only thing).
However, if you mean you want one mailing list and that's it, either
majordomo or mailman will work for you.
