Version 2.1rc1 now has this built-in (the "rc1" stands for "release
candidate 1" - meaning it's out of beta "almost").

If you want to stay with the the 2.0.x versions for now, then look in
the FAQ for a work-around.  The work-around runs a script at 4:59pm that
basically deletes all the held messages (for lists where you don't want
held messages) and then copies in a blank "request.db" file over the
existing request.db file.

Good Luck - Jon Carnes
