	You may want to consider sendmail 8.12 (current is 8.12.9, with 
8.12.10 currently in Beta2).  There are many new features with 
sendmail 8.12, including envelope auto-splitting for parallel 
delivery of a single mail message to multiple recipients.

	See Mailman FAQ Entry "6.3. MTA Performance Tuning Tips for 
Sendmail" at 

	You may also be interested in Mailman FAQ Entry "6.6. Mailman 
Performance Tuning for Mail Delivery" at 
"6.8. Improving performance by DNS caching" 
and "4.11. What about performance?" at 

	See also the file sendmail/TUNING from the sendmail distribution.
