no. you can have many instances of "qmail-smtpd" running on different IP addresses and/or ports, but it's still just the one instance of qmail. there can be only one qmail-send process (which is what i understood the original question to be about when he said "qmail- queue"- i followed his terminology so he would understand what i was saying, meaning to correct him at the end but i forgot.)

for the record, "qmail-queue" is the program called by qmail-smtpd, qmail-queue, qmail-qmtpd, qmail-qmqpd, and (if you have the "mess822" package installed) qmail-ofmipd program. it handles adding messages to the queue.

what the original question was asking about, as near as i could tell, was "qmail-send". this is the program which manages the messages in the queue, once they've been added. this process handles scheduling all deliveries, either to a mailbox (i.e. a "local" delivery) or to another mail server (i.e. a "remote" delivery.)

by default, qmail-send will not schedule more than 20 remote deliveries at the same time. if you need to have more outbound deliveries happen at once, you can create or change the /var/qmail/ control/concurrencyremote file. this file should contain the number of remote deliveries you want to see at once. there is an upper limit of 120 on this value, if you need it higher you will need to edit the source code and re-compile qmail.
