	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.
