Eh, what that process is doing ? It should not spin like
a mad that way... (Unless you have lots of messages in
there ?) (Btw: what is that ZMailer's version ?)
Some error detection mode is a bit too fast, perhaps.
See the TODO file in current sources, it does mention similar
error behaviour, but with two target threads...
Eh, what does 'mailq -Q' tell about your queues ?
A possible way to do it:
queueonly # since 2.99.49p5 (July 25, 1997)
#(+ other parms)
command="smtp -c smtpx -x"
Now this pair means all your non-local traffic will go
to a non-automatically kicked queue, and you have to
manually initiate a "ETRN outbound.relay.nl" operation
on it every now and then..

Yes, it feeds jobs to the TA, and TA tells it to feed more...
