    If you don't run the mailserver/list-config yourself, your ISP will
    need to make changes, but they're pretty simple/straight-forward (for
    those with a clue about email/configuring daemons).

    or, set

    SMTP_MAX_RCPTS = 1

    in mm_cfg.py, but if you're going to do that, you might as well do VERP
    for better bounce recognition as it will have no additional cost.

    Subject: [Mailman-Users] multiple recipients
    My ISP says that multiple recipients on each message is a VERY bad idea
    and wants to know if there is a way to make mailman send to individual
    addresses.

    Why would that be very bad??
    So they prefer 100 seperate e-mails over 1 that goes to multiple people?
    Yes that sounds much better indeed :-S

    Or i don't understand the question?

    Considering only things like impact on the mail server, it is certainly
    better to send one message with N RCPTs than to send N identical
    messages with one RCPT each, but ISPs tend to view messages with a
    more than a few envelope recipients as likely spam.
