On our case I think we have always had a 20 sec delay between *every* SMTP
command when sending to Rambler, so every message takes at least 60 seconds
to deliver. Haven't been a problem, even though messages to Rambler might
pile up temporarily if there's lot of trafic to this destination. Not
enough traffic that anyone would complain, enough for us to notice.
