That is just how VERP works, every email is unique (at least the
return-path). They must be crazy to run a several million recipients
mailing list with sendmail... Do you remember the time when the
FreeBSD lists were driven by sendmail? The lists were lagging several
hours behind. And I don't think we have high two or three digit k
subscribers on a single list. Maybe JMB can shed some light on how
many people are subscribed to the lists (just ranges).
