I don't think you do in this case. Of course, it never hurts to restart
mailman after changing mm_cfg.py (unless you made a mistake, but still
better to find it now), and often it is required, but it is only
necessary if the things you changed affect mail processing.

The web CGIs are loaded each time they are used so they always read the
current mm_cfg.py. Also, the list configuration is loaded each time it
is used, so if you are only changing things that affect the web UI and
then changing list settings via the web UI, you don't need to restart

I think you are thinking of SMTP_MAX_RCPTS which controls the maximum
number of recipients (RCPT commands) for one SMTP transaction from
Mailman. This has no effect for a personalized list since if the list
is personalized, the post is sent to each member in a separate
transaction since the message is personalized - i.e., each SMTP
transaction has exactly one recipient.
