How many forwarding agents are there ?
8, right now. They accept something like 1.9M messages per day. I should note that we've written our own MTA, to better integrate with LDAP.

So on average each MTA has 250 LDAP connections open , worst case ? I guess I'm curious as to why ??

What's the purpose of having that degree of concurrency ?

In fact, we've currently got the MTA (it's called simta) set to limit itself to 250 inbound SMTP connections. We monitor the SMTP interface (and the LDAP interface) to ensure that it remains responsive. Our customer expectation is that when email is sent, it will arrive at the UMich recipients mailbox within seconds. In short, the concurrency reflects how our users send & receive email.
