This is an MTA configuration issue. There's nothing here to
"fix" within Mailman.

That's a pretty big point. Mailing list servers should not be
dependent on the normal mail servers, and vice-versa.
In fact, I suspect that once you move the mailing list handling
onto a separate server, all the need for any kind of throttling will
go away completely.

It's an issue that should be easy enough to fix through modifying
the configuration file.
