from the exchange management console, go to recipient configuration and choose the mailbox that you want to stop mail from being sent or received.  Go to properties and then mailbox settings and un check Use mailbox database defaults and check Prohibit send and receive and choose 1KB.  Unless the mailbox is empty, they will not be able to send or receive emails.

If you want Interserv comment to apply immediately, you will also need to move the users mailbox to a different database.
