Hello,
this tutorial describes time based roules in outlook. i think you can manage with server based roules...

http://www.vladville.com/2008/03/time-based-outlook-2007-rules.html
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.
