imsimta shutdown

The imsimta shutdown command shuts down the MTA Job Controller and the MTA Dispatcher. Shutting down the MTA Dispatcher shuts down all services (for example, SMTP) being handled by the Dispatcher. It can also be used to stop the SMTP, LMTP, SMTP_SUBMIT servers. Note that you can only restart a Dispatcher service that is currently running. If you do imsimta shutdown smtp, you must restart the Dispatcher to start the SMTP service again.

Note –

You must be logged in as root to use this utility.
