I've recently set up a new mailing list for announcements to customers, with 
about 18,000 addresses on it. The addresses were collected legitimately (we are 
not spamming).

This is the first list I've set up with that many addresses (our next biggest 
list has 9,000 on it), and the problem is that a message sent to the list has 
resulted in the same message being sent to recipients several times (up to 10 
duplicates have been reported).

Some customers were understandably upset.

We're using Majordomo version 1.94.5 & sendmail 8.11.3 on a Debian Linux server.

Can anyone give me advice on preventing this problem?  Would Keith Moore's 
bulk_mailer software fix the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Sincerely, Kirk Ismay
