    Mailman - Did they all send?!?

    Ok so I have a mailing list I have been setting up and testing all week. Small batches of email to addresses on the localhost and outside addresses have been sending fine. Today I added the 2059 email subscribers into the list and sent the first live mailing on the new system.

    While the emails to the local host and some of the emails to the outside addreses were recieved I have a feeling that many of the emails never made it to their destination. For example i have a @mindspring.com and a @hotmail.com address both of which didn't get the email. However, these addresses both recieved the email during my testing without problems.

    I checked the exim_mainlog (i'm on a whm/cpanel server) and the number of emails sent do not add up even close to the nuber of addresses in the maillist.

    Can someone help me find how to check what sent and what didn't? Maybe a count or something? Any help would be appreciated.

    It could possibly be the fact that your IP [block] is on a spam blacklist... who's your host?

    I checked spews.org and the IP is not blocked.

    The thing that gets me is I tested these same email accounts without a poblem before the mass email.

    With MailMan & Exim it could take couple of hours before all addresses receive the email message. MailMan I believe sends an email in batches to every 100 addresses, and the rest gets queued
