Complaints: 1, at least. I've already blocked connections from one site
using qmail because it routinely throttled my mail server.

One. That is all you need to get your messages across. That is all
sendmail + bulk_mailer will have open at any time (I do not know about
exim). In fact, it will take less time to serially deliver five messagse
than to parallelly deliver the same five messages because it will put less
of a load on your machine, the remote machine, and the intervening network.

Ignorance is bliss, isn't it, Dave.
