There is likely some issue with the outgoing MTA not accepting MAIL
transactions with 'too many' recipients.

Normally, you would look in Mailman's 'smtp' and 'smtp-failure' logs
for relevant messages and you would adjust the MTA or set
SMTP_MAX_RCPTS to a smaller value than the default 500 in mm_cfg.py,
but since this is a hosted server, you probably have to deal with the
hosting provider.
