Forwarding Exchange based e-mails

Is it possible to forward Exchange e-mail accounts to another Exchange e-mail account only during certain days...like weekends?  I have a user that wants her assistant's e-mails to only be forwarded to her during weekends.  Any ideas?  Never had this request before.

thanks everyone!

Right click on the user in exchange. Choose Exchange general or exchange advanced (not sure which tab its under.) and choose delivery options. Choose who you want to forward too and whether you want it to forward and not deliver to the orignal mailbox or whether you want it to forward a copy.

Yea I know that much but wasn't sure if this could be setup as a schedule so I don't have to toggle this function on/off every week.

Oh sorry missed that bit. No exchange cannot schedule forwarding its an all or nothing setup. You could try rules that they could enable and disable themselves but I don't think you could schedule that either.

Ok...so if I setup an Outlook rule...then that rule would basically need to be "turned on" by the user before every weekend?

What version of Outlook and exchange? New versions have more features... including schedulable out of office with custom rules.
