Mailman 1.x can handle it, but I'd be a bit leery. v2.x should do
much better but is still in beta.

I would strongly recommend using either Postfix or Qmail. You are
going to have to spend some time tuning your MTA and how you handle
your mail spools (batter-backed RAM disks are not a Bad Idea).
Running and maintaining a high volume mail server requires
particular skills and care no matter the choice of MTA.
Note: Strongly recommend the thread that ran here recently between
Chuq, Nigel, and myself under the subject, "Huge Lists". Its not a
long thread, but the signal level is high.
