Answer these:

1. Make sure that Mailman is injecting mails to your Mailserver. What does
your mail server logs say? Does it show anything?
2. If your mailserver logs do not indicate any symptoms of mails then the
problem is with Mailman configuration?
2a. What does Mailman log files smtp and smtp-failure say? Are there any
errors in error-logs
3. What is the value of DEFAULT_MAX_NUM_RECIPIENTS in Defaults.py ?
4. Is your Mailserver configured to handle large numbers of recipients in
the mail?
