The batching is also customizable.  I have my mailman batching set to
500.  Look at SMTP_MAX_RCPTS.  In my case each of the large domains is
about 10% of my list population (800 members on my largest list at the
moment and 83 have yahoo.com addresses).  I'd much rather send a
few messages to yahoo.com than 83.
