Dan, do you know how long it is taking  to send to this list now ? Might it 
make a difference if you did this at night / off-hours ?

Mark & John are right about the time, unless this is a once a week type of 
thing sending at that rate is going to get backlogged.

If this is the site for the band that on the domain you mailed from I'm 
guessing they/you are on a budget. If you get to the looking for a new host 
stage contact me off list, I'll see what I can do.
