By default, it's single-threaded -- but not really "sequential".  It 
has more to do with how the directory entries are written, and not 
what you or I would think of as "sequential".

There are ways to get more than one Outgoing queue runner working, 
but that's a very non-standard configuration, and takes more work to 
maintain.  I would like to see Mailman move towards a hashed queue 
mechanism (like postfix), so that it would be a lot easier to have 
multiple Outgoing queue runners working at the same time.
