In spite of previous assurances to the contrary, my web host 
(webserve.ca) has just told me that they have a maximum 500 per hour 
mail generation rate, and that there's "nothing they can do" to change 
that (which I presume is rubbish). I have questioned them about 
alternatives, and they have become resolutely non-responsive. I host 
several email lists on my server, one of which is a legitimate farmers' 
market email list that is almost at 500.

Is there a way to get GNU mailman to batch or parcel mailouts to comply 
with this policy? I ran into this problem before, and it seemed that 
Mailman simply gave up on the whole mailout, archived the mail, and 
moved on. GNU Mailman in the webserve.ca plan that I have is managed by
