[Tutor] Speed test

OK, I set up a sendmail list, and biglist, and gave both of them a
list of 1000 email members, with my own address as first and last in
both, and 998 aliases in the server, totalling 1000. I sent a message
to BOTH identities, (2 'to' field identities, comma seperated) and
away it went. 

A sendmail list is built as:
listname::include:/pathtofile/filename

This is as minimal as it gets and still use a subscriber file. No
features, no security, and fast.


To my considerable delight, TinyList ran without a hitch and without
tripping over the large recipient limit we set in the sendmail.cf file
of 10, whereas the sendmail alias version never got past #10 alias due
to it! To compare numbers I must set the limit FAR higher temporarily
so I can get all 1000 out for a speedtest comparison.

#1000)

.32 sec/message, or 3.125 posts per second. Not too bad for a 233 Mhs
recycled used server motherboard rescued from an old server being
upgraded.
