Rate limiting and SMTP proxy

I was wondering if someone could clarify if the 'ngx_http_limit_req_module'
would rate limit an smtp proxy. The rate-limiting module says that you can
use the 'limit_req' within a server context. Would I be able to use it
within the server context of a mail block? But the 'limit_req_zone' can only
be declared within an http context.
