Is it possible to disable receiving emails on a BB based on a schedule with BES 5 ?

Hi,
Here is what I want to do : I want my users to receive Emails on their BB only during work hours. Nothing should be sent to BB after 8pm and before 7am and during weekends.
If a mail is being sent at 8:30 pm then the user should receive it the next day at 7 am.

I hope that is clear.

Thank you

David

Hi,

I don't believe there is a facility either on the BES or on the device itself which does exactly what you are proposing.

You have some options:

1. You can disable and re-enable mail redirection for your users using one of the resource kit tools  (BlackBerry Enterprise Server User Administration Tool) - a script could then be written which toggles the setting and this could be run as a scheduled task,
2. Use the on/off tool on the BlackBerry to switch off the device at certain times and switch it on again - this would also turn off the telephony functions so might not be what you are looking for.

The former may not re-direct all of the mail during the period redirection was disabled, however.

Hi,

The experts stated that it was not possible to do what the requestor wanted - the solution to the question is that it cannot be done within the BES.

I said not possible, and yes it is right if you look at the question.

Requester is asking for BB and solution within, no third party. Think before you point out.
