For systems that don't have large quantities of mail I have no complaint
with large timeouts, but one systems like CSNET-RELAY and BRL which have
to
process hundreds or thousands of messages a day, waiting minutes can
quite a delay if the number of "slow hosts" becomes more than a few.
We already have to run 3-4 channels at BRL just to get them mail we
have sent. Thinks a 'bout it. It's not an issue I feel strongly
enough about to push further, but I want people to think about it.
