You seem to have some server problem involved in delivering your post
to mailman-users. From the headers of this post ...

Now, to address your question. I'm not sure what you're asking, but if
you want to unconditionally accept posts with a lot of recipients, go
to your list's Privacy options...->Recipient filters page and set
max_num_recipients according to "Details for". Or if you want to hold
posts that Cc: a number of people, do the same.
