You would have to set "domain logon hours" in AD.  Which would also lock the user out of the network during a specified period of time - which might not be what you are looking for.

If you are having both the BE and FE configuration
Let the default configuration on the BE
On FE server.. we can stop/block the OWA the URL will not be visible from internet

- you can create another web-site with the exchange v.directories and run it only for working-hours
- we can also fiddle-around the NTFS permissions on the Exchange-Vdirs..with additional groups

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
