MAILsweeper SMTP delivery service will bring up one TCP/IP connection per
domain for delivery purposes. It is possible to make the delivery service
bring up more connections per domain. This could be of use in a high
throughput environment or times when back logs are caused by problem
messages. This will bring a new connection when there are a defined number
of messages (MsgLimit1) waiting to be delivered up to a maximum number
(DomainLimit1) of connections.

of tracing mail back to the originating system. It is therefore essential
that you understand the full implications of this before turning this
option on. Default: 0.
