FAQ
I have a request for mail from a mailing list to be delivered at off peak
time, 21:00-08:00. I have set it up in digest, but this format was not well
received, and it only delivers once a day. Is there any way to freeze the
messages and only release at a given time?
Thanks

    Mailman does not support any such functionality for individual posts.
    If you use the digest, you can edit the delivery time to what you
    want in mailman's crontab.

    However, I seem to recall that if the size of the digest exceeds the
    limit set in Digest options digest_size_threshold a digest mail will
    be sent immediately. So in order to insure that the digest is only
    sent when you want it to go out, you will need to make that setting
    large enough to cover the volume of posting in the digest period.
