If you're using "git send-email" then specify --confirm=always and
either manually send a mail every few seconds or use an expect script
like

#!/bin/bash
EXPECT_SCRIPT=
function cleanup() {
if [ "$EXPECT_SCRIPT" != "" ]; then
rm $EXPECT_SCRIPT
fi
}
trap cleanup EXIT

EXPECT_SCRIPT=`mktemp`
cat > $EXPECT_SCRIPT <<EOF
spawn sh ./SEND
expect {
"Send this email" { sleep 10; exp_send y\\r; exp_continue }
}
EOF

expect -f $EXPECT_SCRIPT
exit $?

This will work if your provider limits the rate mails are sent rather
than the total amount.
