You can do that by removing the MX record for the "example.com" domain.

Or just don't create the email account, unless of course you want to send.
Would removing MX records affect the sending ablity.

If you only want to do it temporarily you could also go to cPanel>>Email>>Email Accounts -> Manage -> Restrictions ->
Receiving Incoming Mail "Suspend" for each of the email accounts.
