How do I prevent an exchange account from automatically receiving e-mail?
Posted on 2008-11-10
When I was originally asked this question, I had figured it would be a super easy fix (like unchecking something in the Outlook settings). Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that way.
What I have is a user that receives a huge amount of e-mails all day long. This makes it difficult for him to work on other tasks with e-mails coming in every couple minutes (Very distracting). What he asked was for a way to delay e-mails that come in. Either to automatically receive his mail once every 3-4 hours, or to only receive e-mails by manually hitting Send/Receive.
I thought about having him access his mail through POP or IMAP instead of Exchange, but I'm afraid he will lose a lot of other features that come with Exchange mail that he will find unacceptable.
Is this possible with an exchange e-mail address?
I have complete access to the Exchange server and his Outlook client.
