Hello Jerry,

Is there a way for our IBM I SMTP server to manage the flow of these outbound emails so that we don't overwhelm our company outbound mail server?

None I'd know of. But why do you think you'll overwhelm that mail relay? On modern machinery with recent storage technnology, e. g. Postfix can easily handle some dozens of mails per second. I wouldn't trust Microsoft Exchange to be able to keep up with that. Also, Postfix might be slower when external services are attached to check mails for malware, or spam - some security guys want outgoing mail to be scanned, also.

The mail server services I know of throttle accepting incoming requests when they encounter system resource shortages. While this looks like "overwhelm" from outside the box, from inside it's a controlled procedure.

You probably might get a problem with a saturated internet connection depending on the size of each mail.

:wq! PoC
