afaik this is how smtp should work, qmail will execute qmail-remote to send
each email to its remote host, even though its to the same host.
from memory qmail has a concurrency limit of 20 seperate connections set by
default, create a file concurrencyremote in control directory and put a
numeric value to represent max smtp connects outgoing.
you might want to just try one email to make sure your system/dns is working
man qmail-send for more info
