I didn't set any loop, the list's e-mail obviously isn't a list member,
what I said is that when you want to send and email to the list you put
the list's email in the "To:" field and that's the only recipient when I'm
sending e-mail, I'm not putting more recipients in "to:" field wich could
burst the limit of max_num_recipients if this limit was set.

I've set SMTP_MAX_RCPTS to 250 in mailman and smtpd_recipient_limit to 300
in postfix and I'm still getting these errors.
