    I've had experience with qmail and VERY large volume
    mail servers (sorry, i can't talk about which servers
    nor for which company). However, as was previously
    pointed out: qmail is exceptionally fast
    at delivering mail (my constraint was exit bandwidth),
    but you really need to plan your filesystem and kernel
    configuration around it in order to have it not
    slam into a wall at mach two due to lack of resources.

    I believe that if the kernel and filesystem are configured
    correctly, the existing hardware should be more than
    capable of handling the current listserv load.
