When to Use a Majordomo List?

The article (https://www.google.com/support/a/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=166852) lists several suggestions to get past email sending limits.

If you are sending a mailing to more that 100 individuals, the best practice recommendations are:

Recommend a Majordomo list when:

  • The list is to be used somewhat regularly (not a one-time thing)
  • The membership is fairly stable… doesn’t completely change with each message
  • The list has a recognizable purpose
  • The list is large enough for creating a list to make sense… more than a few of people
  • The list is over 100 people

Recommend using Gmail web interface or multiple separate mailings when:

  • Sending out a one-time mailing to a group between 100 and 500
