Too many emails in queue, how to send faster?

    // I saw others discussed this issue but I think it is different for other cases.

    Im on a dedicated server.
    I have to send 20 000 - 30 000 emails a day. I am sending the emails with php mail() function but not all at once. (Sending a message is triggered by site's page views).
    My server shows over 1000, sometimes 20 000 emails in queue and these emails appear to be blocked there while other new ones are added to queue.
    The emails appear to be legitimate and only 1-2% are spam.
    If I delete some messages form queue then queue starts decreasing like I would have freed up some slots used to send emails.

    Why are these messages not sent?
    Can I do something to send the emails faster? I think there are some server settings that I can change for number of emails sent at once?

    Any help is appreciated.
    Thank you.
