Can anyone tell me if it is possible to delay delivery to an individual domain for a specified period of time? I'm migrating a domain to a new mail server and would like to hold any new email on the IronPort until I tell it it's ok to deliver to the new SMTP route.
You can point to a non existent address or host name as a temporary measure. The messages will soft bounce to the dummy address / domain, depending on your delivery configuration. With the defaults it would typically be 3 days before the messages hard bounced. Once you get the correct IP or hostname in the SMTP route, I would recommend issuing the commands;
delivernow, then choose the destination domain to deliver to.
This will help speed things up on the initial delivery attempt.

What about just setting up a quarantine to hold the e-mail for 30 days or so... then once the recipient system was back online you could release a couple of messages to see if things are working properly and then do a release all and inactivate the filter that sent the mail to the quarantine.
Just an idea.
