Wow, that's pretty amazing. I manage 13 lists and our biggest one with
about 7500 subscribers can take a few hours to process, toss and send. Are
the times above after all the processing has taken place? Internal
addresses?

We have two T1 lines and send out to 7500+ subscribers, around the
world (almost every country on the net). There's simply no way we could
connect to every system and not use up all our bandwidth.

In fact, I think my system is the average (we just bought our system for
about $10k). GreatCircle can take an hour or so to send to all the members
on it's various lists (majordomo-workers, users, etc). In fact, most of
the lists I'm on take around that time.
