Limits the rate of incoming connections. Takes two arguments.
The first argument is the number of connections per second to handle.
If the rate of incoming connections is higher than this, the service will
be temporarily disabled. The second argument is the number of seconds to
wait before re-enabling the service after it has been disabled.
The default for this setting is 50 incoming connections and the
interval is 10 seconds.
As written on qmail.org, qmail is recommended to be run with tcpserver and
daemontools, and inetd, xinetd are not supported anymore.
If you need a hand how to set up daemontools and ucspi-tcp heres is a good howto
