I think you are saying you want one recipient only per SMTP
transaction. Is that right? Are you not getting that? If not, how do
you know?

This should limit you to one recipient per transaction. If that's what
you want, and you're not getting it, did you do 'mailmanctl restart'
after putting this in mm_cfg.py?


This makes Masilman disconnect from the SMTP server after each
transaction and reconnect for the next. It should be as large as the
SMTP server will allow. It affects only overhead. It has no effect on
number of recipients per transaction.
