Nope. What we did was to disable the email in the UI by making the following change:
66 66 var toUsers = ""; // aggregates all message recipients
67 67 var sendDone = false; // has the send been issued?
+ 69 // Begin CalCentral change
+ 70 // Block email delivery of OAE Messages for now.
+ 71 sendMail = false;
+ 72 // End CalCentral change
69 74 ///////////////////////
70 75 // UTILITY FUNCTIONS //
