[Mailman-Users] Not all subscribers receiving list mail.

Thanks Jim.  You may be right that the MTA caused some problems as
indicated in the logs this time.  I'll definitely look into that as a
possibility, but I am not sure that it is the reason for the original
problem.  This server was the MTA for the entire campus in it's previous
life, but now supports mailman only.
We attempted three different times to send to one of these lists and
the result was the message going to the same people from the list each
time.  If this were caused by a disconnection problem with the MTA, I
would expect perhaps a different subset of subscribers would not get the
messages on each occasion.
Thanks very much for your response.

It looks like the MTA on the localhost is probably rejecting
due to a high load avg or too many incoming connections (from Mailman?)

  You probably need to tweak tweak your MTA settings to make it more
