You can change the frequency of periodic digest generation by  
changing the mailman crontab  entry that runs the cron/senddigests  
script.  (And if you don't want the change to affect all of your  
lists, look at the --listname argument documented at the beginning of  
the script.)

Does it really matter when it is *delivered*?  Your mail server  
should be able to collect the mail even if the helpdesk user wasn't  
available.  (You might be able to have your MTA "freeze" certain  
messages in its queue, and thaw them for delivery at certain times.   
An Exim system filter could do that for you for example.  But again,  
why not just let them be delivered by the mail system and just not  
picked up by the user until they are available?)  Or if you mean you  
want mail to a list to bounce rather than be sent or even held, you  
could remove the mail alias except during specified hours.
