I have a few questions regarding the ZOPE mailer implementation: 1. Why did you go for a file system implementation - as ZODB objects are being made into a mail queue anyway? The Maildir step could have been skipped, I suppose, just the connection to a mail server directly over the network interface would suffice. Is there a specific reason for the Maildir implementation?
2. The current implementation can only handle between 30-60 E-mail's a minute. This is mostly due to the naming convention used for maildir files (one a second - actually the Maildir naming allows in between numbers, but you don't use that). 30 E-mails a minute is not really scalable and has the (apparent) downside it (effectively) blocks the Zope webserver for the duration (it should not, but it does, possibly a locked ZODB?). We have that experience sending out bulk E-mail reminders using that module. Sending out 200 mails made the main ZOPE server inaccessible for 3-4 minutes. The reason I am asking is not so much an interest in fixing it for mail, as we can live with that performance issue, but I am looking to implement a similar functionality for storing xParrot/ZOPE objects in version control in a seperate thread. So I would like to understand the reason behind the Maildir choice.
