So I stopped, upped it to 10K users per pass, and now it's just taking several minutes for each 10K pass.

On the outbound side, server load is very high, so I have reduced it to process 3 on each mailqueue pass, that seems to help a little. But the site is at a crawl. We have 2 web servers and a mysql slave setup, if it matters.
Then it must take a long time to connect to your mail server.
