See <https://wiki.list.org/x/4030518>.

The answer depends on the server and supporting infrastructure. E.g.,
how long will it take to process messages to 3.2 million recipients
through the MTA; will the Python qrunner processes be able to acquire
enough memory to handle a 500 MB (about 150 bytes per user) list

Some have found it helpful to divide a very large list into several
smaller lists.
