Listserv is not a synonym for mailing list. Rather, it is the trademarked
name for a competing brand of mailing list management software. Please do
not use "listserv" in connection with GNU Mailman.

Mailman can easily handle a list of that size. If you are to have an
issue, it will be with your computer's resources (memory, disk space,
etc.) and/or Internet bandwidth.
