We came in this morning to find our 3 mail.box filled up with about 180000 warning messages from an SQL server that lost it... It was sending about 1000 messages per minute.  This is the second time it happens in a few months
We immediately stopped the router and enabled a rule to put the messages from that sender on HOLD (pushed to all servers)  then we proceeded to clean up all mail.boxes before restarting the router.
In the end, it took 2 hours to perform the cleanup.  During that time, the router was down and no email were delivered. more than 3000 emails were accumulated when we restarted the router.
I think it would be nice to have a function where we could go to the Mail.boxes, right click a message and select HOLD based on the sender or the title..
This way, the cleanup could take a little longer but at the very least, valid messages would get delivered.
This could also be used for multiple reasons.. such as testing mail routing on new external systems using SMTP
I know Extrafax has such a function (although, it acts only on one message at the time..)
Additionally, would it be possible to add "Occurence" on the rule list (Along Sender, Subject etc) to which we could add a number? (ie: If occurence>60 per minute ) then we could deny or hold..
We could also have an additional action which could be "Warn someone"...
(yes, I was tempted to copy and paste those 180000 messages in the recipients mail files....:) )
