This problem is now solved, I think...

Ok, that's good to know for sure!

After restarting Mailman I still got "Too many recipients" errors in the
Sendmail log (maillog).

Now I checked again, and there are still "Too many recipients" errors, but
when I check later entries, I find out that the Hotmail emails have finally
been sent. 

I didn't do any systematic checking, but on the basis of a small sample, it
seems that everything works OK!!

That sure is easy to misspell - btw, "misspell" is one word, not two. :-D

Thanks Hank,

We will let it be 9 now for a while - so far the list admins haven't
complained. :-) If there will be problems again, I will lower the value, as
you suggested. 

I'm glad I found this mailing list, it already proved helpful. Thanks all!
