What MTA are you using? I recall an earlier post by Julian where he tested
exim vs sendmail on one of his test machines, getting 3 times the
throughput with exim.

I'm interested in what kind of performance people are getting with sendmail
and MS. I'm about to design a system built on redhat and sendmail which
will handle lots of relaying (500k-1mil email daily approx)

I'd rather use sendmail but if the performance gain with exim really is 3
to 1 that might be the road we haveto take.
