Prioritizing email traffic using the delay delivery option provided by Axigen

How to prioritize email traffic using the delay delivery option provided by Axigen

Resolution

Prioritizing email traffic in Axigen can be designed via  the delay delivery feature introduced following the 6.x release. Based on the traffic patterns found in your email system architecture you can introduce delay for some data that does not require immediate delivery as to free resources for processing more important emails.

This feature is available for definition from the WebAdmin interface -> Security & Filtering -> Acceptance & Routing -> Advanced Settings context. You should select to add a new Acceptance/Routing Rule and from the next context:
- Define an appropriate name for this new rule as to be able to track its contents easier
Also make sure that the Enable this acceptance / routing rule option is selected.

Under the Conditions section define the resources for which the delay policies will be applied. This objects can be sender/recipients accounts or defined based on specific domains.

In the Actions section, using the drop-down box select Delivery -> Delivery Delay and define a time interval using the following format: +[[nnh] nnm]nn[s]
Examples:
+20s - for adding a 20 seconds delay period
+10m - for adding a 10 minute delay interval
+1h  - adding a 1 hour delay period

After completing the above steps and all the needed details are in place make sure to Save Configuration.
