Each list has an attribute admin_member_chunksize which controls this
for that list. If the total membership is <=
admin_membership_chunksize, it will be displayed in one page.
Otherwise, it will be displayed in sections by the first character of
the e-mail address.

There is an existing RFE related to this at

Unfortunately, the gotcha here is that admin_member_chunksize is not
available in the admin interface (see
It is set at list create time from the Defaults.py/mm_cfg.py variable
DEFAULT_ADMIN_MEMBER_CHUNKSIZE, but after the list is created, it has
to be changed with bin/withlist. See
for an example of how to do this.

The search
will turn up lots of prior discussion of this.
