I'm thinking of moving a mailing list from Majordomo to Mailman. I know
very little about either, less about Mailman.

Currently our host does not count mail against our bandwith quota. We are
moving to a new server where it will be counted. I have no idea how much
we use or how to work it out. Say we have 500 subscribers and a 2k
message is posted. How much bandwidth did we use?

I'm told with Majordomo it's 500 x 2k. But if we were to run Bulkmail
with Majordomo that would decrease to 10k. Now I don't know enough about
how outgiong mail works or what Bulkmail is, to question this. But it
seem like a good idea?

So, my question is, how much bandwith would Mailman use and could I use
Bulkmail with it?
