Yes, incorporate a policy server which has rate limits.
(Postfix addon) Specifically this one:
It uses mysql to remember who, when and how much....
Pretty easy to setup.

I use it for other functions, but it will do rate limits,
the policy server will merely issue a "451 try again later",
so this will work well for you.

Change the Makefile (for FreeBSD) to:

# Please setup your default paths for includes, example
inc      := -I/usr/local/include/mysql
lib      := -L/usr/local/lib/mysql

as the default included paths didn't work for me.

The command run is "make linux"
Do let "us" know how you made out!
