Hmm. We are talking about opt-in lists, right?

Mailman is a fine mailing list manager, and I think it has more
functionality and a better security track record than some of the other systems.

This depends entirely upon the SMTP server Mailman is talking to, the size
of your messages, and the size of your outbound pipe.
You can deliver on the order of a million messages a day @ 15K/message using
a Pentium-200-grade box  and a T1 line, and depending on how well your
recipients are batched at the same destination SMTP server, you might do
significantly better than that.

And bandwidth, of course.
