What is traffic shaping?

Traffic shaping is the act of managing and prioritizing the use of data on a network in order to reduce the impact of heavy bandwidth users to light bandwidth users. 

In email, traffic shaping is related to managing the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) connections from a domain or IP address in order to filter out or block spam.
