I don't think I understand this.  Why would using an ISP's relay speed
up the mail transfer?  Because your own server only sends one copy and
the ISP's server then chunks it up for everyone?  (That's just a guess;
haven't looked into it.)

That's right. Why deliver 100 times when once will do?

In my case, I configure my firewall as the outgoing mail gateway: everyone else sends through it. If I do change ISP, it's one box to change.

keep it in the list <user@localhost>

Make this <nobody@localhost>:-)
