It can only be done in sendmail. sendmail stops accepting mail if your load
average exceeds 9 (by default). You could drop this to a lower value. You
can also stop accepting mail when you reach a number of children. I'm not
sure if you can stop accepting mail with a certain queue volume. Have a look
at the sendmail config options. -> www.sendmail.org
