	Off topic answer: We had a 100,000 user mailing list running on
	majordomo + bulk_mailer + sendmail. It worked reasonably well
	except for majordomo subscribe/ubsubscribe requests taking forever
	to run through the massive subscriber file.

	Since switched to exim and a custom perl postgresql solution
	and boy is every aspect faster :)
