g_retry_limit "number of hours to keep in queue" - default 48
g_retry_minutes "interval between retries" - default 60
Then you can set up the domain based rules using g_retry_rule.
As for the yahoo problem you could experiment with these settings
Using all three of these:
g_send_tolimit domain=string perhour=int
But I suspect multiple ip addresses would be a better solution, maybe at
least for the domains that send the most stuff....
You can can bind surgemail to multiple ip addresses (if they have them
