    Are you asking to set send time to one minute or display time out to one minute?

    If display time you can add a script to your template file to setTimeout() which may frustrate the one finger typers or phone user.

    To amplify why what Design75 has asked is important: the typical way of handling a bot is for operation to appear normal but the message is not sent forward. If the same thing were to happen to a real person, then that communication and potentially important business information would be lost. Alternatively, if something "else" is done, such as an error message provided until the minute has lapsed, then that could provide information to said bot and they may just wait it out or do something to change how they are perceived such that it may be the same bot but appear to be different..

    Basically, there may be other ways to accomplish the goal of slowing communication, though the reason for that need helps determine the "fix".

    A lot of spam and advertisements will crowd out the emails of normal customer inquiries.
    They will send the same advertisement continuously in a few seconds
