From inetd(8):

The optional `max'' suffix (separated from `wait'' or `nowait'' by a dot)
specifies the maximum number of server instances that may be spawned from
inetd within an interval of 60 seconds. When omitted, `max'' defaults to 40.

That's a rate limit, not a concurrency limit.

Error 23, in Linux (not such a big assumption seeing that your libc is
called :-)), is ENFILE (File table overflow). Essentially,
your system cannot open any more files. It's just a temporary situation,
just wait it out and hope you don't get more SMTP connections. :-)

! I have set the file concurencyremote=20 and concurencylocal=10

concurrencyremote and concurrencylocal do not affect how many
qmail-smtpd processes can be run. Having 328 connections seems to
me to be doable only if you invoke qmail-smtpd via inetd (see

Try using tcpserver from the ucspi-tcp package instead. It has a
concurrency limit of 40, by default. See
