FAQ
hi,

i have a question, this is the situation

i created a mailing list, and i added about 2000 email directions,
including a hotmail address that i have, so i sent an email to the list,
with the intention to send the message to the 2000 users, and i dont know
if the 2000 users get the message, but the message never got to my
hotmail... so the question is, is there a limit of users that mailing lists
allow, or whar happened in that situation. and if there is no limit, when
does the 2000 users will get my email, at the very instant or 250 per hour
or how does the list works

    This is a host configuration question. Mailman just sends the post to
    the host's mail transfer agent (MTA, such as sendmail, postfix, or
    exim). You need to talk to your system admin about this.

    In general, mass mailings of that scale should complete within a
    couple of hours from Mailman's point of view, and with the appropriate
    host configuration can complete in a minute or so. However, there are
    many reasons why the delivery to the end recipient's mailbox may be
    delayed for several hours.

    To find out about the hotmail address, you need to look first in
    Mailman's logs to make sure the post was sent, then in the MTA's logs
    to find out whether hotmail accepted it. This is usually not a
    Mailman problem.

    Look in Mailman's smtp log. In a default Mailman installation, this is
    /usr/local/mailman/logs/smtp
