Only by modifying the code in Mailman/Handlers/SMTPDirect.py

The only control is SMTP_MAX_RCPTS which sets the maximum number of
recipients in one transaction or the VERP options which will result in
one recipient per transaction, but there is no control over how fast
Mailman generates messages to the MTA unless you build a delay into
the code.
