You've not specified the problem very clearly. How frequently do you expect
to send messages to this list? Do you have several lists? How urgent are
the messages? Do they need to be delivered in the space of a few minutes,
hours, or days?
If you don't need personalised messages, then you can do the VERP in your
MTA. That should make it much more feasible. Configure Mailman with several
parallel queue runners to prevent messages to large lists from holding up
messages to small lists.
