You'll have to figure that out for yourself mostly, my gut reaction
is that the recipient limit is too low, if you ever did have a
multi-recipient message, you'd split it into too many pieces.
Rather, set something in the 10-20 range (the RFC requires
servers to support at least 100, and Postfix by default sends
up to 50 and takes in up to 1000).
After burning in your IP at low volume, with mail typically not
delayed by Yahoo at all, I would try to grow the (destination aka
connection) concurrency limit to something in the 5-10 range.
The main thing that will matter is "burning in" a new IP address,
once they've learned you're not evil, I would hope their rate limits
won't get in your way at all.
