You could use the Out Of Office assistant, there is a RULES button where you can define server based rules as highlighted above. And yes you can of course set a time window.

You can also configure this server-side in the Exchange Management Console, or by using the Exchange Management Shell.

Microsoft's official procedural documentation:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd351134.aspx

1. Right-click the mailbox in the Management Console.
2. Select Properties.
3. Click the Mail Flow Settings tab.
4. Click "Delivery Options", then "Properties".
5. You can establish a Forward-To or Copy-To address here.

Unfortunately, there is no built in feature for establishing a timeframe.

Outlook will let you set a schedule, but if you must do this on the Exchange Server, I think you would have to set up a scheduled task to run Exchange Shell commands to turn the forwarding rule on, then off at specific times.

That Microsoft documentation link has the commands you need for that.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
