Actually, that's not ours, it's cPanel's. See the FAQ at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/sYA9> for a bit on the difference.

>The abridged version of my issue is this:
>I have a subscriber list of over 2,000 people.  When I send emails thru the mailman program, I'm never certain how many of those emails are actually successfully received by my list members, and how many simply never get there (due to spam filters & server restrictions).

The FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/4oA9> has some suggestions about

>I believe my issue is due to sending out so many emails at one time (the full 2000).  Is there ANY WAY to send emails out to a specific group of members on my list?  For example, mailman alphabetizes list members by name.  Is it not possible for me to send email to members A-C  then wait a few hours and send D-F  then wait a few hrs more and send to members G-I etc?

You could break your list into a number of separate sub-lists and post
to those one at a time. Mailman doesn't have a way to limit it's
sending rate. See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/j4A9>.
