can't just make separate connections to the target for each recipient.
qmail certainly disqualifies as network friendly. For this and other reasons.
yes, qmail is not a good reference. nevertheless, I don't think trying really hard to save on connections is the objective here. I'm talking about 5 to 20 mails per day. seriously, that's *nothing*. mail servers get more spam than that. I want to keep the mail agent simple. underpowered on purpose. just for the "install and mail works" thing, not for the "hey, I can also run my mailinglists across this mail agent" thing. just imagine a blood simple smarthost delivery agent and add queue + local delivery. if something is feasible, then it could be a feature. if something requires advanced techniques (queue daemon, whatnot), then it is not the place to put it.
I know Matt has been doing big provider business since long time, but that's not the target. dead. simple. like mined vs emacs/vi. just that *something* is there.
