+Mailing list management is one of qmail's strengths. Notable features:
+
+* qmail lets each user handle his own mailing lists. The delivery
+instructions for user-whatever go into ~user/.qmail-whatever.
+
+* qmail makes it really easy to set up mailing list owners. If the user
+touches ~user/.qmail-whatever-owner, all bounces will come back to him.
+
+* qmail supports VERPs, which permit completely reliable automated
+bounce handling for mailing lists of any size.
+
+* SPEED---qmail blasts through mailing lists an order of magnitude
+faster than sendmail. For example, one message was successfully
+delivered to 150 hosts around the world in just 70 seconds, with qmail's
+out-of-the-box configuration.
+
+* qmail automatically prevents mailing list loops, even across hosts.
+
+* qmail allows inconceivably gigantic mailing lists. No random limits.
+
+* qmail handles aliasing and forwarding with the same simple mechanism.
+For example, Postmaster is controlled by ~alias/.qmail-postmaster. This
+means that cross-host loop detection also applies to aliases.
+
+* qmail supports the ezmlm mailing list manager, which easily and
+automatically handles bounces, subscription requests, and archives.
