Something I've wondered about - how hard would it be to make Majordomo chop
up a list and only feed 100 or some definable number of destination
addresses to each copy of sendmail? One of the big problems with some
larger lists I host (2500+ subscribers) is the amount of time to send to all
subscribers - 25 simultaneous sendmail process with 100 destination
addresses each would be much better for my uses than 1 sendmail process with
2500 addresses. Wouldn't think it'd be all that hard, would it? Has
someone already experimented with this? I'll play with it myself if no one has.
