Hi Stephen,

Wow , may be this is my problem . Could you explain me more ? How can I chose multiple recipients per transaction rather than 1 recipients per transaction as now ? ( I see that I  set VERP_PERSONALIZED_DELIVERIES = No now) .
 Summary, I wish the mail list  will :
    +  inject messages to MTA (QMAIL) faster and faster .
    + I can log how many mails I can inject to MTA at the same time.
 Best regards,
 Huu Hien

Because each SMTP connection is only sending to one recipient, that's
why.  If you are using VERP or personalized messages, the messages
really are different as far as the MTA is concerned, and thus each one
must be sent separately.

For personalized messages, this is true at the Mailman stage, and
you'll have to choose: multiple recipients per transaction, or
personalization.  You can't have both.

For VERP, it may be possible to configure Mailman *without* VERP, and
have the MTA do VERP itself.  However, I don't know if you'll be able
to take advantage of Mailman's VERP features (such as for bounce
processing) in that case.  You may need to have a separate system take
care of those features at the MTA level.
