Interestingly enough, the largest mailing list systems do not use databases
to store their addresses. The likely limit will be bandwidth, not anything

Look into qmail/ezmlm for a good combination, along with the tied & true
majordomo list manager. I've been running some large mailing lists using the
ezmlm/qmail combo - which easily saturates a T1 connection running just a
350 MHz PII.
