The only way they would have any clue as to the size of the list is via
the number of recipients in their own domain. It is likely that if
this number is large, the message could wind up in a "spam" or "bulk"
folder or be bounced or silently discarded.

Look at your mailman logs - in particular "smtp" to see how many
recipients the message is sent to and "bounce" to see if it's bouncing.
