None of these are likely to help you achieve what you want.  They'll just 
cause the same number of recipients to be spread over more or fewer outgoing 
mail messages, but given that most mailing lists don't see a whole lot of 
additional traffic when they turn on VERP, this is unlikely to buy you a 
whole lot.

You need to throttle at a whole different level, and this is not something 
that Mailman can help you with.  Go to the FAQ section of the Mailman wiki 
at <http://wiki.list.org/display/DOC/Frequently+Asked+Questions>, and search 
for "throttle".
