	Everything will depend on your configuration.  To get a sense for 
how much the performance of a Mailman system can differ depending on 
the configuration, go to the Mailman FAQ wizard at 
<http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py> and search for terms like 
"performance" and "VERP", and read all of the pages that are returned.

	In short, the answer is "maybe".
