We are in the process of upgrading Exchange from 2003 to 2007.  In Exchange 2003 you could set when the Routing Group connect was available.  You can modify the setting under Routing Groups | Connectors | Properties | Delivery Options tab Specify when message are sent through this connector.  We used this to delay mass mails to after business hours.  I wanted to see how you set this up in Exchange 2007.

Unfortunately, you cannot configure the Send Connectors to schedule delivery. This is by design.

Not really sure why. But heres why I think it was.

Since the link speeds and the bandwidth has grown so large, there really no need to schedule delivery. Messages can be transferred in real time.

Its just what I think.. You can ask the Exchange design team at
