Sounds like you have a problem there.

If this is an announcement list (where you might have some control 
over the timing of messages being sent, as opposed to a discusion 
list where you won't) you might be able to temporarily split the list 
into two.

If it's a discussion, you'd be better off moving it again OR getting 
the current server admin to allow more than 400 emails/hour.

Well, technically Mailman *is* working properly.  It's the throttled 
mail gateway that's getting you.

Maybe because you're ranting and sound like a potentially 
high-maintainence client.  (-;

Actually, they say that they've attempted to contact you but it's 
bounced from your Yahoo address twice.

We also host Mailman lists.  I hadn't spoken up before now because 
we're relatively new to Mailman, having just switched over in March 
from another list software that we've been running for many years. 
And because I was busy with other stuff - like working on a long 
overdue overhaul of our own site.

Before I can make you an offer I'd need to know the topic of your 
list and get an idea of your message load - how many messages per 
week or month on average, and what the averages is of the total 
megabytes used.
