This is either a problem with the MTA on the server, or the outbound 
queue within Mailman.  Either way, the normal suggestions is to 
search the FAQ for "performance" and then follow the recommendations 

Since you are using a hosting service, they would have to be the ones 
to apply the suggestions from the FAQ.

There's not much you can do.  If your provider is not being 
responsive to your problems and giving you the assistance you need, 
then you may want to consider finding a different provider -- and 
warning everyone about the provider you're having problems with.
