Populating exchange queues for alert testing

Hi,

We monitor the "longest queue length" on our hub transport and edge servers and I need a way of filling the queue to raise the amount of messages being held in the queue.

If I disable the send connectors, I'm guessing that will hold mail in the queue on the hub transport server?

Is there any easy way of halting the queue on the edge server so it populates and we can see if our monitoring works?

Or would naturally the hub transport server hold all messages that could not be delivered to the internet?

Cheers.

Maybe the Suspend-Queue cmdlet can be used for your scenario as you can run it on both your Edge and Hub Transport servers to stop processing for a queue: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb123497(v=exchg.141).aspx
