I always like to just edit /etc/password.  Go to the password field and
try something like inputting **NOLOGIN** at the start of the field.

Many of you are in the same boat, where customers fall behind and 
collections letters still do not seem to grab their attention.

Short of changing passwords, does anyone have a best practices method of

temporarily preventing access to email boxes temporarily. In most of 
these cases, once the customer has paid, I would like to turn back on 
the email boxes.
