  • Hi,

    Based on my research, there is no feature in Exchange server to directly meet your requirement: reject specific users sending emails to specific distribution group at specific times.

    We can use transport rule in Exchange 2007 and later version to achieve Reject specific users sending emails to specific distribution group. Create a rule in Exchange EMC:

    Apply rule to messages

    from "UserA@domain.com" or "UserB@domain.com"

    and sent to "GroupA@domain.com"

    send "cannot send messages to this group" to sender with "5.7.1"

    About schedule the transport rules, there is no feature in Exchange supporting it. I find an article about scheduling a transport rule by using task schedule in Server manager. Just for your reference:
