This has been a long thread so forgive me if this has already been
discussed but...
  If you are usually delivering multiple messages to a handful of
domains wouldn't the performance be greatly improved by using Exim or
Sendmail that is capable of delivering multiple messages per connection?
Particularly if AOL is involved since I have seen it take four or five
attempts to get a connection to their SPAM clogged mail servers. 
  If I understand q-mail correctly it does one message per connection
and opening/closing the connection often takes longer then transmitting
the data.
