	Hmm.  No, haven't heard anything specifically about this.

	Do you have any kind of log data that you can show us, both from 
the mailing list server and within the groupwise system?

	Hmm.  That might be an issue with groupwise trying to deal with 
large numbers of recipients for a message to the mailing list, 
whereas it works a lot faster with messages that have only one 
recipient.  However, going to full personalization (with or without 
VERP) might not help this situation, since you would then be storing 
many more copies of that message within the groupwise system -- 
individual messages might be handled faster, but the overall load on 
the system might be much higher.

	Of course, this is all just guesswork, without any real idea of 
how groupwise works internally.
