I believe what is happening is that the WineHQ mail server only accepts 
one SMTP connection at a time. This will probably reject half the 
messages sent by your mail server. Then they will get resent after a 
short period of time, but in batches so more messages will get rejected 
and then resent after a longer period of time, and so on until all the 
messages have been sent.

What probably sets your mail server apart from the gmail servers, for 
example, is that gmail probably sends out each message individually, 
rather than batching it with other messages bound for WineHQ.
