My guess is that you deliver serially, opening a single (or perhaps 2-3
depending on queue-depth) connections to AOL at any given time.
MailingLists.org opens up to 120 concurrent connections, thus kicking
off AOL's filters. My understanding is that the 'limit' to kick off
the filters is about 17 concurrent connections. At that point, your
mail starts vanishing (no bounces, no error, just no delivery).
MailingLists.org pumps out about 300,000 messages a day which is not
really "high volume" in the global scope of things. I'm not doing
stats on how many of those are AOL vs. anywhere else (yet).
