Many MTA's can be configured to deny posts which are addressed to
more than X recipients.  Usually this is used as a form of SPAM
detection/prevention, or as a method of forcing bulkmail (such as
list postings) to go thru an MTA configured for that load.

MailMan ouputs messages with (guesstimate) 100 recipiants per
message.  If the MTA that MailMan is talking to has such a limit,
you'll get that error.
