Mailman Users:

I am running mailman 2.1.5.

I have a list of 623 members. I have mailman configured for
100 recipients per message (smtp server limits
recipients/message to 100). 

As I understand this setting, when a message is sent to
this list it is broken out into 7 messages (6 with 100 and
1 with 65). How are the addresses grouped per message?

I have run into an issue where some people receive the
message within 2 minutes while others it takes 23 minutes.
I am trying to determine what could be causing the
bottleneck and how to resolve it.
