How long does it take for the initial CAS onboarding process?
The expected time is 30 minutes. In case if it takes longer than that, please contact SonicWall technical support.
Is it recommended to use automatic mode while integrating or can there be unexpected problems in manual mode?
Yes, it is recommended to use the automatic mode. In manual mode, everything needs to be manually configured on the SaaS application admin center which might result in unexpected error/authorization failures.

Yes, you can use a specific group to get scanned by CAS and later add other users.

If there is any problem with the mail flow, is it possible to temporarily turn off mail through Cloud App Security?

Can I stop SaaS applications integrated with CASB?
Yes, there is a stop button under Configuration > Cloud App Store. But it takes a few hours for the deletion of rules/connectors/journal-rules on the Office365 side to take effect However the rules can be manually deleted on O365.
