I read them all, and I don't think it is relevant (this is the same 
kernel and same versions of postfix dovecot and mailman for some time 
now), but, I changed the default limit to 10 and reloaded postfix, with 
the same error when sending to my 'All' list (that has only 6 members, 
all lists).

Also, as I said, lists that only have individual recipients work just 
fine, even with 30+ recipients.

Also the weirdness when a list member has their vacation enabled - they 
get the original list message, but the vacation message gets stuck in 
the queue with the error.

I'm thinking of trying to reinstalling (this is gentoo, so that will be 
easy) first mailman, then postfix... I'll probably try that tomorrow if 
no other solution presents itself.

Thanks for your help, Mark, much appreciated...
