That would probably mean smtpd_recipient_limit (running Postfix),
which I have to set 500.  Currently, SMTP_MAX_RCPTS is set to the
default of 1000 in Defaults.py.  I'm wondering, then: given this, would
setting this to, say, 1 cause mailman to deliver one file per email?
(This would be an example, of course; doing something like this would
most likely bring my server down to its knees.)
