This is why you need to introduce multiple processes sending
multiple mails. You shouldn't have trouble over a low latency link.
I agree, it's certainly not perfect and I don't know of any software
to make this easier, but it really shouldn't be too hard to write..
OK, yes it's harder than writing mails to a directory :)

No, unfortuantely it's not faster than using SMTP connections due to
the way the mails are processed.
