Is there any way to setup a vb script in outlook to move specific email base on a specific  days of the week and time  without the account receiving a notification alert first.  I setup a  vb script that move the emails based on the criteria above but by the time it move the emails the user with this account get the alerts notifications.

The Application.NewMail Event will be triggered before rules and notifications are processed, so looks like the proper way to do it in Outlook VBA.
It does not work for offline (non-cached) Exchange profiles, though. And you need to search for the mail, as this is just a generic notification about new mail coming in, without having a reference to that mail. On the other hand, your VBS code should be similar already, and so you might be able to migrate that into the following:
Public WithEvents olApp As Outlook.Application

Public Sub Application_Startup()
  set olApp = Outlook.Application
End Sub

Private Sub olApp_NewMail()
   ' Now first check the time of day (and other criteria), then get the Inbox, and check the mail against the criteria.
End Sub

Open in new window

I prefer to use Items.ItemAdd (which is triggered by every single mail/object), but that might be called after rules.

A rule applied before any other rule is another way to directly trigger VBA code in Outlook. You can not trigger based on time, so you'll have to check the time and probably other contraints in VBA itself again. The pro with this is that you'Ve got the email (Item) object already as a parameter, like with ItemAdd.
