Hi, all,

My ISP has closed down their Mailman server as I was the only one using
it. So I have found a new home for one list but my second remains a

I had thought of running Mailman on my own server sending to the isp's
smtp same as my regular email, and it indeed seems possible.

One main issue could be the limits imposed on the smtp connection, like
100 messages per connection, hourly max limits etc.

I have been looking at Mailman documentation and see nothing there
apart from tips on how to make it go faster. I have also looked
(briefly) at Exim & similar documentation but see nothing obvious.

What I am looking for are optiojs like SET_HOURLY_MAX=1000 ,
SET_SMTP_MAX=100 and similar (I made those up).

Any suggestions on a route to follow very welcome - otherwise for an
easy life I must move my site to someone who will provide Mailman.

bestest to all
