Scheduling a rule to turn on and off

I have written a custom Out of Office rule to respond to only internal senders.  The sending of Out of Office messages to external servers is turned on the Exchange server (which I opposed strongly).  So, I built a rule to respond to only those internal senders.

I am wondering if anybody has found a way to turn a normal rule on and off based on a schedule.  I would like to schedule it to either run base on a time frame or on a reoccuring basis (like during the weekend).

Thank you.

Greetings, DilbertW01.

There is no option for this and in Outlook and up through Outlook 2003 there is no programming method for manipulating rules, to include turning them on and off.  Outlook 2007 may change that.  

Cheers!
