  Since you seem to use majordomo, I had troubles with lists
larger than a couple hundred adresses. Basically majordomo was
trying in sequence all addresses in the list. Unreachable hosts
and DNS time outs were leading to very long propagation time.
  So I installed splitlist, which accelerate the process by
plugging in the majordomo architecture and forking a new mail agent
for every set of N addresse. This did increase the load on the machine
but provided a very impressive speedup.
  Splitlist used to stay at:
but I can't reach it anymore. Finding a copy shouldn't be too hard
if you're interested,
