 Interesting... mail.merit.edu seems to be running Postfix.
Indeed, that was part of my point. They've already made a pretty good choice for an MTA to handle mail for the list.

                                                             Did they dumb it
 down?  :)
I doubt it. They've just got a big list, and they may not have tuned the installation quite as much as they could have. Or, the software and hardware may be as tuned as they can get, and they're just out of capacity.

In any event, the point I've been trying to make (repeatedly) is that, so far, all we have is a relatively small sample of data, and we do not (yet) have enough information to be making any valid conclusions.
