Assuming sender is sending 20 messages to recipient:
Case 1: sender running sendmail. Sender generates one SMTP session for all
20 messages. Recipient requires one instance of his MTA to handle the SMTP
session, for a total of 1 instance.
Case 2: sender running qmail. Sender generates 20 SMTP sessions, one per
message. Recipient requires one instance of his MTA for each SMTP session,
for a total of 20 instances.
Both cases deliver 20 messages from sender to recipient. Case 1 has one
instance of sendmail; Case 2 has 20 instances of qmail. One instance of
sendmail does the same job as 20 instances of qmail.
