There is any way to schedule mail delivery from a mailbox group to allow users only to get access to outlook/mail flow internal/external only during a certain hour or a period of a day?
Any thoughs will be very welcome.
Thanks in advance,

SBS is licensed (and limited) per user or per device, not per AD account. In other words, you can create 150 AD accounts if you like and SBS 2003 will not stop you.

Hmmm, i like the idea, but sbs is already almost reaching the limit of the users, (about 65 right now).
The other idea from Jazzy could be work on SBS? Usually i have a great respect from SBS scripts, because every time i changed something it was not a good idea :(
So, any thirty party solutions around?
Thank you guys

Well, another option would be creating two accounts for each person - one having a mailbox and restricted logon times and another one without a mailbox but able to logon anytime. The 'restricted' accounts wouldn't get logged off, however, at the beginning of their 'mail-less time' so you'd have to schedule a logoff for them.
All in all, I'm with Jetze, solving a carbon-based problem by ways of a silicon-based solution seldom works.

There's nothing built-in, but you'd probably know that already. The only thing I come up with is to schedule a script that changes access rights on the mailboxes or a component of Exchange server. But every option has implications and is quite nasty.
Are we trying to solve a business problem with a technical solution here?

Thank you so much for spending time with my question.
You got the idea:
"or rather like
- outside of the above times, users in group B will have access to non-exchange resources but cannot access their mailboxes".
Thats exactelly what i need on my client.
Do you think it is possible to setup Exchange 2003 packed with SBS2003 to do this?
Again, thank you for your time.

let me see if I get this right:
- you have a group of users, each of whom has a mailbox on your SBS, let's call it group A
- and you have another group (group B) of users who also have a mailbox each
- while group A has to be able to access, send and receive mail 24x7,
- you need users in group B to only be able to send and/or receive mail from, say, 11 to 15 every Tuesday and Thursday
now, is it like
- outside of these times, users in group B will still have access to their mailboxes and can submit mail but it only gets delivered in the next 'mail window'
- outside of the above times, users in group B will also have access to any other domain resources (file shares, Sharepoint etc.) they have been granted access to
or rather like
- outside of the above times, users in group B will have access to non-exchange resources but cannot access their mailboxes
or even like
- outside of the above times, users in group B will have no access to any domain resources, including their mailbox
