Are you allowed to use a newsreader or a mail+newsreader (Outlook
Express, Thunderbird, <many others>)? If so post through newsgroup
gmane.comp.python.general at news.gmane.org (as I am).
The major advantage of this approach is that there are hundreds of
mailing lists from gmane.comp.python available in a one stop shop.
Better yet all sorts of goodies are available under news.gmane.org,
e.g. gwene.org.python.planet or
gwene.com.activestate.code.feeds.recipes.langs.python

And the NNTP clients and protocol were designed from the ground up to
handle largish volumes of messages grouped into "lists" and threads.
Trying to coax that functionality out of e-mail by using list-servers
and various procmail and e-mail client tricks results is a pretty poor
substitute.
