Nothing deletes a "wrong" address automatically, but if the address
bounces too often then Mailman will automatically move the address over
to "No Mail" so that it no longer sends mail to the address.

DBF format - no.  You can dump your mailing list out to a text file (one
address per line) and then use that to subscribe folks.

How many emails can your mailserver handle?

Note: Mailman is not a personal mailing list handler, it is a server
(web-based) mailing list management application that is designed for
corporate or community use.  If can easily be installed on any common
version of Unix or Linux (or Mac OS-X), but it is not really suitable
for use on a Windows based server.
