Hello,

First, create two distribution groups; one for the users you want to set the restrictions on ("Restricted Users") and one for the users you want to be able to send to these users after 5 ("Allowed Senders").

The second step is to create a transport rule. You would use the following syntax:

New-TransportRule "Block Messages After 5" -SentToMemberOf "Restricted Users" -RejectMessageEnhancedStatusCode "5.7.1" -RejectMessageReason "This user is not permitted to receive email messages between 5PM and 7AM" -ExceptifFromMemberOf "Allowed Senders"

Run the following command to disable the rule:

Disable-TransportRule "Block Messages After 5"

Now, create two .ps1 files on your server. The first will be called "EnableTR.ps1" and the content will be:

Enable-TransportRule "Block Messages After 5"

The second one will be called "DisableTR.ps1" and the content will be"

Disable-TransportRule "BlockMessages After 5"

Now, create two batch files. The first will be called "EnableTR.bat" and the content will be:

powershell -command "& 'c:\EnableTR.ps1' "

The second one will be called "EnableTR.ps1" and the content will be:

powershell -command "& 'c:\DisableTR.ps1' "

Now, in Task Scheduler, schedule EnableTR.bat to run at 5PM and schedule DisableTR.bat to run at 7AM.
