I noticed that too.  It seems that the MTA now used by the mailing list
server is Postfix rather than sendmail and I have a feeling that this
may be responsible for the increase in speed.  It might be interesting
if the performance of sendmail vs Postfix (and perhaps qmail too) could
be compared under mailing list conditions.  I've often heard the
complaint that sendmail performs very poorly in handling large mailing
