  • Hi,
    What you can do is to suspend the submission queue in Queue Viewer.
    That way the HUB Server will still receive messages but not deliver them anywhere.  
    Note: This af also incomming messages and not only messages that users send.

  • I am not aware of any way to impose a rolling delay on user's mail.  Why would you want to do this??  Perhaps whatever you're actually trying to accomplish can be achieved another way.
    When Outlook is in "online mode" you can schedule a message for later delivery.  You could also drop mail into the pickup directory at your own pace.  Perhaps using one or both of these methods and a roll of duct tape, its possible, but unadvisable.
