Limit max number of e-mails sent per hour
 
Hello list
I use sendmail-8.14.4-8.el6.x86_64 and I wonder how to restrict the
number of emails sendmail sent over an hour.
Is the define(`confMAX_QUEUE_RUN_SIZE', `200') command what I'm looking for?
Thank you in advance.
Nikos

www.sendmail.com/sm/open_source/docs/m4/tweaking_config.html#confMAX_QUEUE_RUN_SIZE
that setting pertains to queued email...
not email that entered the queue and was successfully delivered.

sendmail does not provide 'rate limit emails' functionality by default.
