2 emails per minute on Postfix

Hi, on virtual server Debian, I installed Postfix and Mailman, I need to set up to sending 2 emails per minute on mail server, can advise how can I do that?

I found in “Webmin - Services - Configuring Postfix - Edit Config Files” string “smtpd_client_message_rate_limit = 2” does this mean that in a minute will be sent 2 emails?

Thank you.

Better to use default_destination_rate_delay = 30s

This will restrict to send only 2 mails per minute per recipient domain.

<code>smtpd_client_message_rate_limit</code> limits the number of messages that can be sent in a minute. So you you set it to <code>2</code>, then you will only be able to send a total of two emails every minute.
