Have you checked if the Outlook rules don´t apply automatically in Exchange? I know that if you create a rule for incomming mails in outlook, the work automaticaly in Exchange, for example if I create a rule to move incomming mails to another folder, Exchange do that although Outlook is closed

sorry but we need it on the server site
What I meant is: you can use Outlook to create rules in Exchange, the only problem is that you must create the rule in all the users

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

You can configure Exchange to send large mails after a particular time, and thus you could adjust this to send all mail after certain hours.
You can also set the SMTP Connector to send mail at a particular time(s).
What exactly are you trying to do and do you want all email delayed, some email delayed or just a particular user etc?  If so, based on what determining criteria do you want to delay the mail?

I could remember that this option was available at the 2003 Exchange Server, but I can't find anything on the 2007 System?

Okay - I don't think anything exists sadly - or at least - I can't find the settings anywhere, but there are Transport Rules available which might meet your need.
Open Up Exchange Management Console> Organization Configuration> Hub Transport> Transport Rules
Create a new Transport Rule - Call it "Send BCC emails for Child x" and click Next.  On the Conditions page, select "Sent to People", click on People and add your child's name then click Next.  On the Select Action's Page, select "Blind Carbon Copy (Bcc) the message to addresses" and select your name.  Add any exceptions and then click on New to create the rule.
In Exchange 2010, there is an option to "Forward the message to addresses for Moderation" - so short of an Upgrade to 2010 - you may want to settle for a BCC or similar.

Well at least now we know that it's not possible with the current version of Exchange 2007.
