[Mailman-Users] mailman - sendmail sending queue too long

I have the following problem with mailman. I'm administering a list of 
about 450 subscribers. When there is a new mail to the list, mailman 
invokes sendmail with very big recipient lists. I can check this by running

/usr/sbin/sendmail -bp

occasionally. My problem is, that some of these addresses are 
problematic (the mail server is not reachable, it's slow, etc.) The 
effect is, that people on the end of these lists get their mail with a 
considerable delay, because they have to wait for all the others before 

I thought one solution might be to have mailman send out more jobs to 
sendmail with a smaller recipient lists each. But I didn't find such 
configuration options.

Is this possible? Or is there an other solution to this problem?
