My bosses want an auction email account in Exchange 2007. There would be an address (mailbox), that can get email only during a certain time frame. Before and after that it rejects the email?

Is this possible?

Well, you can disable the mailbox in the scheduled time, using simple scheduler provided with the OS. You would need to utilize PowerShell for that.


In regards to the cache, which is pointed out in the comment, here is the link to the article which describes it. Thanks for pointing this out. Very informative: http://theessentialexchange.com/blogs/michael/archive/2008/01/18/Exchange-Server-Caches.aspx

    Take note that the Exchange dsaccess cache may have some bearing on how well this works for you. It may not "pick up" the disabling or re-enabling of the mailbox right away.
