A six hour delay because the list of addressess is too large? That would
take tens or hundreds of thousands of addressess, or else some precisely

I vote for Tim Ramsey setting things up on his Listserv server, if for no
other reason than to just evaluate how well it works. Let's give it a try
for a while.
