But when, if ever, will sendmail be improved for transmitting large
numbers of messages? I have a list server box (P90, 64mb) that routinely
sends out 100k+ messages a day, and on heavier days when it tries sending
out a few hundred k, the system bogs down. During one particularly heavy
period, I setup a temporary system (P100, 32mb) running zmailer and it
handled things much better.
