I don't see exactly why one would use in prod environment a product that 
seems to be young.  You have a lot of mature alternatives for MTA: 
Sendmail, Postfix, Exim, Qmail, Zmailer that offer many different ways 
to be configured.  Apparently, you can throttle connexions with a milter 
or a config.
