The only send during this time range is is a feature of Outlook 2007/2010, when used with Exchange 2007/2010.

However to get the desired effect in earlier versions you go to out of office -> add a rule -> advanced Then under received set your date range. This should accomplish the same thing more or less.

Instructions are for 2003, haven't tried it in OWA.

I see 2007/2010 allow to select date/time range, but 2003 only allows for date range, not for time range, this is ridiculous, MS hasn't thought about setting auto reply for non office hour?

They did and implemented it in exchange/office 2007.

I see your point, I mean you could always turn it on when you leave and turn it back on the next day, but that isn't a great solution. However there is no way to do every day from 5pm-8am without a 3rd party rules engine (which isn't a good idea in itself).

FWIW, I wouldn't use it for normal outside-of-business hours. Its only
necessary to use the OOF when you are not going to be in during a normal
workday or for holidays.

Theoretically exchange event scripting could do this, but I don't know if its worth time spent or a good idea either.
