	Mailman will aggregate together as many recipients as it can per 
message envelope, if you make sure that the VERP and per-user 
features are turned off.  This will make it a bit more difficult to 
manage the mailing list (especially bounces from misconfigured mail 

	See also <http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py?req=all#4.11>, 
<http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py?req=all#6.6>, and 

	In particular, make sure that SMTP_MAX_RCPTS in 
~mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py (see ~mailman/Mailman/Defaults.py for 
details) is set to a sufficiently high level to meet your needs.
