I am not sure how this will help you - you are *sending* lots of mails
not reciving them arent you ? That variable controlls what happens to
incomming mail, not outgoing.

I used to send a lot of bulk email via exim - generally I fund the best
technique was to queue it, and then have a queue runner on a very short
interval with a fairly high maximum number in parallel. That way you end up
with a lot of parallel deliveries after a short time, and it seems to
be fairly efficient.
