[Mailman-Users] SMTP_MAX_RCPTS setting for gmail and others

         I've recently turned off personalisation on a couple of large 
lists because it was running server load up too much when I sent thousands 
of individual, html e-mails.  Now I am getting "failed with code 452: 4.5.3 
Too many recipients" from gmail, hotmail, aol, yahoo and others.

         I realise the solution is to drop the value of 
SMTP_MAX_RCPTS.  I'm playing with various settings, but I wonder if anyone 
knows a value that seems to get past all the big systems?
