Forward off-hours Emails

How to forward emails to another address if received during non-business hours.

In this example, we're going to forward any email received on weekends or before 8 or after 5pm on weekdays to another address.


To set this up:

  1. Create a new Filter:
    • When mail arrives in folder "INBOX"
    • And Day of Week Equals Sunday
    • Or Day of Week Equals Saturday
    • Or Time of Day Less Than "08:00"
    • Or Time of Day Greater Than "17:00"
    • Forward Message to address of your choice.
  2. Now, any time you send an email during non-business hours, a copy will also be forwarded elsewhere.
