Ok, I did a rough check, and lists.integral.org has approx 1000
distinct addresses distributed over 6 lists, with the largest being a
net-fiction list with 660 subscribers. That list receives 20-45 posts per
day. Also, since it is a story list, most of the posts are stories avg'g
20 - 40KB.
Our most impressive stat is our web-archives, since the back
archives of two long running lists were added into the mailman archives
when the lists were converted to mailman. The web-archives contain a total
of 300MB, consisting of 36,000 messages.
