Mailman List:

I recently upgraded through rpm from 2.1.1  to 2.1.5.  Just prior to 
upgrading one of my lists failed to deliver the messages to all members 
of a list. The mail server has a limit of 100 recipients per email. I 
configured mailman for a maximum recipents to 100. My list has 592 members.

Am I correct in my assumption that a message to this is broken out into 
6 messages (5 with 100 recipients and 1 with 92)? The people who got the 
message have email addresses throughout the alphabet. Some of the 
addresses starting with w,f,k received it but then others like e,m, and 
some other w did not. How do I troubleshoot this and prevent it from 
happening again.

Several messages sent later in the day delivered fine without any problems.
