create small lists instead of large ones, then schedule the same message to 
be sent every hour to a different list ? this way the servers will not

"You can't fit ten pounds of mud in a five pound sack." I.e., you are
trying to do too much with too little. If you can't get more hardware or
reduce the size of or maybe the number of posts to your lists, you will
have problems. What you are doing is not good, but if you think it
allows you to avoid the real solution, you can keep doing it.

You are the only one who can determine if what you are doing is causing
lost and/or duplicated messages or perhaps other problems.
