  Zmailer is based on a three process model:  a router, a scheduler, and 
a smtpserver.  The scheduler gives you very tight control over how 
messages are delivered by limiting the number of simultaneous tranports 
etc.   

  However, Zmailer is not the most well documented system around, but 
anything is better than sendmail.cf.
