Both the message limit and, IIRC, timeout, are configurable through
Exim.  Exim has a pretty good set of docs, you should go through them.

I believe my own message transmit is set to a low C value -- 100 
messages at a time.  Useful on a dialup connection prone to droppage,
with several busy mailing lists.

The default timeout is 30 minutes.

Queue value:  smtp_accept_queue_per_connection

Exim's batched execution is governed by /etc/cron.d/exim, which is set
at 30 minutes by default.
