I am using Postfix as my mail handler.  When I have ActionMailer deliver
a large number of emails, it takes a while.  It seems that in my Rails
process, ActionMailer waits for Postfix to actually send each message
before returning and moving on.  Is there a way to configure either
ActionMailer or Postfix to speed the sending of bulk mails, perhaps by
having ActionMailer just submit the mail to a queue instead of waiting
for the mail to actually be sent?
