RE: Schedule incoming external mail

Reason:

On a number of occassions we've had infected messages come through prior
to there being an antivirus pattern release to combat it.  The idea is to
reduce our exposure by halting incoming external mail at night (in our
case, nightly external mail is mostly spam) which increases the likelyhood
of an approriate pattern release.

My only other thought was some form of holding area on our server but
stopping the external mail seems simpler to me.
