This sounds suspiciously like a "wrong question". There may be an answer,
but the answer to the wrong question doesn't make anyone happy.

A large, unlimited queue size implies a lage, unlimited delay in mail
delivery, which is surely not desirable.

If I recall correctly, the basic problem is that you're handling mail over
to a virus checker, and the virus checker is too slow to keep up with your
mail volume. Couldn't you buy another of those and have zmailer deliver to
both in parallel? Or have zmailer deliver to your one virus checker using
two parallel SMTP streams?
