Is this a one-way list? No? Does your daily email input exceed 27.91? In
which case you have a problem. I would comment that 300/h is low, mine
allows 2000/h

There is a patch available to mailman that
will allow you to throttle the mailman output. See the url

http://wiki.list.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=4030607

This at least will automate the despatch process for you.

You must be running Mailman as a relay, same as myself, and  I find that
this patch does the job with no fuss although a fix in postfix may be
preferred if that is what you are using.

Anne
