SMTP Fast Exploding External Deliverer for Sendmail

SMTP feed – SMTP Fast Exploding External Deliverer for Sendmail

Smtpfeed is a SMTP delivery agent which is called by sendmail, and it improves required time to complete delivery of copies of a message to recipients of huge number.

This delay of delivery by sendmail causes by the fact that implementation of SMTP delivery routine in sendmail processes all delivery in a series. For this reason, when it takes long time for delivery to one recipient which is in a huge list, delivery to following recipients is greatly influenced.

To avoid such a problem, delivery agents should be implemented so that a delivery is not influenced by preceding delivery DNS query and SMTP delivery par destination should be processed in parallel. Smtpfeed is the SMTP delivery agent for sendmail implemented with this idea.
