[Mailman-Users] reboot servers

The servers are all vps'es with 256 ram.. and the lists are as big as 33,000
subscribers per list, 3 lists per vps.. it's one big mailing list for a TV
station and newspaper.. only one message (newsletter) is sent out every day
to the subscribers.. but setting:
SMTP_MAX_RCPTS to only 5 in mailman resulted in a huge number of messages
generated by mailman that halts the servers, that's why I every hour stop
mailman then stop postfix then reboot the servers to free up the memory and
continue distributing the mail..
my question is, is this a good solution? or should I split them into very
small lists then send the same message every hour after making sure that the
servers finished distributing the mail for the previous lists?

How limited are these servers? How big are these lists?
