      Hi Viktor,

      Thanks once again for helping me on this.

      Please understand that I'm very "open" and thankful for any help. I'm also trying to understand what you meant.

      Getting whitelisted is always the best solution, but believe me, there are some providers that just don't answer any email, they just won't help us to even work in compliance with their rules. Thats why I'm asking for help here.

      Sometimes you guys speak in a very advanced language and it may be hard for some people to understand what you're meaning. Worse than that is when we try to explain our problem and we're not clear enough. So I tried to better explain myself and then you became with another solution.

      Anyway, I'll search how to use this "next hoop" feature and see if it fixes the issue. Although I'm still having to respect the amount of message per time frame so the question persists: how can I low down delivery to these destinations without opening too many connections to them? Having them all in one only transport/nexthoop will not fix the problem if I don't control the throughput, right?

      Sorry for the questions, I'm really trying to understand the solution here.

      Thanks once again.

      No, it is not, since it leaves out the common nexthop which
      consolidates the queues for all the domains.

      Your best bet is to get whitelisted by the receiving system for a higher
      throughput limit.

      If your average input message rate for these domains falls below the
      current cap, and you're just trying to smooth out the spikes, the
      advice I gate is correct, if you're willing to listen.

      Is there anything else I can do to have a better control of my throughput?

      Understand that Postfix queues are per transport/nexthop, not merely
      per transport. To schedule mail via a specific provider as a single
      stream (queue), specify an explicit nexthop for all domains that
      transit that provider. Since you're already using an explicit
      transport, it is easy to append the appropriate nexthop.

      Any help would be very appreciated.

      Ideally, you will not dismiss help when it is given.

        No it doesn't. Postfix logs "delivery temporarily suspended" and
        skips Yahoo until the "dead host" timer expires.
