I just added 1,000 subscribers to my first mailman list over the weekend
using a Majordomo subscription list, which was a linux-formatted file with
one email address per line.  I used Firefox on Windows to do it after
scp'ing the file down from the linux box.

address1 at domain.com
address2 at domain2.com 

Worked perfectly.  Just be sure you have the notification provisions the way
you want them, you may not want 1200 people getting a Welcome message for
