are you refering to page timeouts because the "pipe is clogged"?
or are you refering to the fact that the CF server resources are maxed out and there are no resources available to run any other applications during that time?
The CF server resources are maxed out. No other CF applications can run unles the CF server is restarted.
There is a lot of processing going on, not to mention drive activity and memory allocations. If you don't have a big system then sending large quantities of email via CFMAIL will have an effect until it is done.
We had a similar issue years ago (we run 32,000+ mailers daily) and decided it was just simpler to build a second small server to just run the mailers each day so it did not affect the primary server. Unless you want to build a honking massive powerhouse, that is likely the answer that will best suit you too.
