      hi-

      i have an mx which then subsequently delivers incoming mail from the internet to another computer [ via relay_transport = relay-mda:[mda.example.com]:smtp-relay ] for further processing. while performing some maintenance on mda.example.com, i'd like to configure postfix on the mx to accept all mail as it has been, but instead of then delivering to mda.example.com, retain all mail until it is manually released. it looks like the hold queue may be appropriate for this? how can i accomplish this?

      thanks

      ... Rather than the hold queue, use the retry service. /path/to/main.cf: transport_maps = hash:/path/to/transport /path/to/transport: mda.example.com

        Rather than the hold queue, use the retry service.

        /path/to/main.cf:
        transport_maps = hash:/path/to/transport

        /path/to/transport:
        mda.example.com retry:4.2.1 mda.example.com is temporarily disabled
