I run a series of mailman lists off of a 28.8 modem. For the most part
it's not a big deal. Granted, most of my lists are fairly low activity
but, we do get the occasional tempest in a teapot which means the mail
queue fills up for a couple of hours as everyone busily swaps messages and
then it calms down as they realize they're talking past each other.
If you are running a very active list, I suggest making friends with your
ISP and asking very nicely for permission to relay through their mail
host. If you get the ok, then the loading on your line should be minimal.
