Well I don't think this will solve your problem, because it doesn't
address the delay between transactions, but the maximum number of
recipients per SMTP session is set in Defaults.py with
SMTP_MAX_RCPTS = 500
and can be changed in mm_cfg.py

Well, what is in the FAQ
>Mailman FAQ: http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py
is article 6.11 that suggests places other than this list to go for
help with cPanel installations. This list generally can't offer much
help. In fact, wrt my response above, I don't even know if mm_cfg.py
makes sense in a cPanel installation.
