FAQ
I have seen people complaining about mailman hosts limiting their
outgoing messages to X per hour/day... Is that something that the
host puts in? Or is there something with mailman that's limiting?

I think I know the answer I just want to double check :)

    This is something that some ISPs/hosting services put in their outgoing
    mail service in order to limit the ability of their users to send bulk
    mail. Whether or not they consider the effect of this on the Mailman
    service they offer to their users is unknown, but it effectively
    limits their Mailman service to small and/or low volume lists.

    There is nothing in Mailman itself that does this.

    Assuming a host does this, is there any type of throttling mechanism in
    mailman? I've had to set up throttling with a php based newsletter
    mailer in the past, and so I presume I'll have to deal with this when I
    move those lists to mailman, as I plan to do soon.

    Mailman has no throttling mechanisms. You would have to hack the code
    in Mailman/Handlers/SMTPDirect.py to create one.
