since a larger number of lists are hosted on our server, I am running into 
a problem with the number of processes on the server, which is limited. I 
get a number Is it a way out to set some limit on:


Any other suggestions to keep the number of concurrent processes down, even 
if delivery takes a bit longer?

Typical errors I get are:

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
"|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman bounces abc"
    (reason: 2)
    (expanded from: <abc-bounces at xyz.tld>)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
Cannot fork: Resource temporarily unavailable
554 5.3.0 unknown mailer error 2

It seems to me that this indicates that the maximum number of allowed 
processes has been exceeded.
