    Default Throttle Outbound mail rate

    Is there a way to throttle the outbound mail delivery rate, so no more than 100 emails per minute are set to be sent?

    I would like to have a steady flow out outbound e-mail to keep us from bursting our bandwidth.

    There's no method of throttling outbound email in Postfix (AFAIK), you'd be better off using your firewall, router or some other application to do bandwidth management.

    Default throttling -> shaping

    You could always use linux tc shaper since it is a TCP port and outbound which is perfectly controllable by the server.

    Message me if you want to try some shaping scripts out.
