Q1.  What is the priority of messages after "Q" "mailbox is busy" and how to manipulate the priority?

Q2.  Do messages that have failed with "Q" "mailbox is busy" get put back on the queue with lower priority than normal?
Or, since that condition is expected very short-lived, does it go back with normal priority and therefore possibly get delivered before other new mail for the same user entering the queue?

Example log message:

Q3.  We have users who have sieve filters which file some mail directly to their "Deleted Messages" folder and other folders which receive a lot of mail.  When one of these starts receiving enough mail to cause a lot of "mailbox is busy", it seems to continue retrying very quickly, which just generates many more "mailbox is busy" errors.  Is this impacting the delivery performance for other users?

Q4.  Is there a way I can have messages that are being filed into a folder, be submitted to the ims-ms queue with a lower than normal priority?
