[Mailman-Users] Limit to the Number of Subscribers for eachlist?

I am actually using bluehost as well (recently started)
Haven't reached a limit for now - I was having major delays with messages
being sent - found out it was b/c I was sharing a server with mulitple other
users so we would all be in 'que' waiting for a msg to be sent.

So, a thought I had - is it a 'crazy' idea to set up my own webserver and
install mailman on it? Or is that a bit too much.

Not sure if anyone out there has done that.
