Well, I can tell you that the debian.org list server has 80000 subscribers
to all of it's lists. The largest list is debian-announce with 14

The total traffic we do is on the order of 500000 remote deliveries per
day, with peak traffic rates of 30-40 remote deliveries per second. 

Till recently it was running on an older P166 with IDE disks, now it has a
PII 400. It runs Debian GNU/Linux and qmail with smartlist (bleck).
