I would not think several thousand emails high enough volume to warrent a
complicated HA system, .. seems like a decent MTA like PostFix or qMail
with current h'w (maybe Opteron) would be more than sufficient?
Seems also that 'Net latency would be a far bigger issue with delivery time
than generating emails - fat pipes on the sending end doesn't guarantee
unbounded traffic capability all the way to the destination.
