I potentially have the same problem -- the system occassionally gets
very high load spikes, NOT due to MailMan, and Exim is configured to
refuse connections when load gets too high.

If the new system also allows mail to be delivered to the local MTA
by handingit off to a sendmail executable, there should be little to
no problem. I forget the new design tho.
