Not that I am aware of, that would mean holding the mail for a que!
Wouldn't it make more sense for him to keep his mail server at your POP
(ie. co-located)?

If you setup an SMTP route for his mail, it would just be placed in the
standard que (whatever you have it set for) and it would try for however
many days you have it set to try, then it would reject/return the mail.
That could work, if he happens to connect and stay connected while the que
is being processed, but that is not a solution in my opinion.
