Q1: Controlling out going messages
I have large groups 60k plus. may are going to yahoo
or google accounts. If you send to many at once,
yahoo or google will black list you. Is there a way
to send out the list email in , say 100 users at a
time?


Q2:Disabling "who <password>"
I noticed you can send an email to
mailman-list-request at mydomain.com and put into the
subject line "who <passwd>" and the
list server will send you the list of all people
subscribed to this list.
How do I disabled this?

    Short of modifying Mailman's delivery code which would probably just
    result in Mailman's message delivery becoming hoplessly backlogged,
    there's no way to do this in Mailman.

    What you have to do is negotiate with Yahoo, Google, etc. To accept
    your list mail. If you can convince them that your list traffic is
    legitimate, you may succeed in getting your lists whitelisted.

    On the other hand, if the issue is not the number of total recipients,
    but rather the number of recipients per SMTP transaction, you can set
    SMTP_MAX_RCPTS in mm_cfg.py. This controls the maximum number of
    recipients in one SMTP transaction.

    Assuming you want to disable this for list members as opposed to
    someone authenticating with the list password, set Privacy
    options...->Subscription rules->private_roster to "List admin only".
