My experience is that the sink from postfix is just dandy and
that M-Stone from the Mozilla Project is an outstanding
mailblaster with stats and so forth.
It's not clearly documented, but when you need 3 machines to
destroy a mail server (and optionally hit it with POP/IMAP)
that's the tool to use.
Also, there's a recent discussion on a benchmark tool of
someones on news:comp.mail.sendmail
Ideally, you want multiple processes each threading (I've found
limits in the number of threads/process that can actually function).
If there are tools out there that do what you want, or come close,
then my view is that it's better to improve existing wheels
and move forward rather than start a wheel design comittee again.
