I run a small list manually on my Mac using Eudora, POP3 (on my ISP), and
QuicKeys, a macro program. The amount of traffic is far more of an issue
than the number of subscribers, although the two are of course related. I
could probably handle 20 messages a day or so without too much trouble.
Each message takes about 10-15 seconds for me to turn around (format, paste
text, and the like), and then a similar time to send.

Given that my last experience with Majordomo led to my filling my
subscribers' mailboxes with around 1000 bounce messages, due to a poorly
set up configuration file, I'm a little gun-shy about going back.
