Well, the only limit I really see there is the 200 per hour. The 1 per
6 seconds was for mailling lists, which PM notifications are not.
I've honestly never heard of such low limits.
One option is to switch from using sendmail/local email to SMTP
authenticated mail(I beleive Joomla supports this) and use a Virtual
Private Server to filter all your outgoing email through. For 20$ a
month you could setup a dedicated server just for email traffic and tune
the heck out of it.
Every now and then I consider setting one up mainly for incoming to run
Maia or some other spamcatcher, but it works for outgoing as well.
