I was tasked with disabling several hundred email accounts on our qmail servers.

A nice easy way to accomplish this task is to create/replace the users .qmail files with a single line :

|/var/qmail/bin/bouncesaying 'Put your custom bounce message here'

Don't forget to make a backup of any existing .qmail files if you want the ability to restore their original settings!
