Zmailer is the thing that Rayan Zachariassen (sp?) and others at
U of Toronto came up to clear problems with sendmail which was killing
their main gateway machine.  It is intended to be much lighter than
sendmail for machines that have to process tons of mail.

You can get it from ai.toronto.edu or something like that.

(Note: this above represents my perception of the history of Zmailer;
I wasn't there, so I may have misinterpreted some of this)

I tried it once, and it seemed excellent, but in the end I didn't use
it because it was overkill for our needs.
