In Exchange, is it possible to forward one user's email to another user one day a week, every Thursday for example?

I have a client who would like one user's email forwarded to her every Thursday (as the one person is unable to receive email Thursdays because she's unavailable).  Is this possible?  How to set it up?  Running SBS 2003 with Exchange 2003 until this weekend when we upgrade to SBS 2011 and Exchange 2010.

I don't think that is possible, the user could create an Outlook rule but they would need to enable it Wednesday before they leave and disable when they come back in.

You could try a transport rule to look in the header http://www.techexams.net/forums/exchange-server-office-communications-server-exams/55816-exchange-07-email-forwarding-based-calendar.html

You could write a Powershell script with the Set-Mailbox command and the -ForwardingAddress parameter and schedule it to run Wednesday nights and Thursday nights (to disable the forwarding).

I don't have access to a system to try it out for you at the moment but this should put you in the right direction.

That's a good idea.

Seems like the easiest thing to do was to create the rule and teach them how to turn it on and off.
