Try creating a test list in your /etc/aliases on the box (non-local email
addresses) and send to the list. Monitor the queue while you are doing it.
Does this list move out quickly? How does the speed compare with qrunner
handling a Mailman list?
I'm guessing that either your sendmail is having some weird timout, or that
you box is too heavily loaded with other processes...
What does "top" give you when you look at it? How much processor is
available? How much memory is being used? Is it swapping alot?
How big is your Swap on your box? How much of your swap are you using while
sending to a list?
Are you running your box in Run Level 3 or in Run Level 5 (graphical user
interface)? Please run it in 3 - your machine is fairly under powered for RH
7.2 so it is not going to be able to handle Run Level 5 very quickly.
Have you updated your kernel from the default install:
up2date -f -i kernel, kernel-headers
How much space do you have on your box - are any of the filesystems running
low on space?
Of key importance for space is the /var area used to handle the mail queue.
Since Mailman in general runs extremely fast - even on low processor boxes, I
would focus on your system and its load to see if the bottle neck is there.
