Treat as bulk over
The minimum size of mail messages to be treated as bulk mail.

This queue is emptied after the urgent and normal queues, if there are more messages to be sent than the number specified in the "Max outgoing mail" field on the Mail tab on the Basic Internet Setup form. Decreasing this number means messages assigned Bulk priority are more likely to wait until off-peak hours before being sent, and other messages will be sent more regularly.

Some large sites (for example, aol.com) require many retries at peak periods.
