With VBA that's possible. You can set up a Run-a-Script rule to call the
script that checks the time, if it's within your specified time frame then
it forwards the mail else it does nothing.
Please note that Outlook must be running for that. And Outlook is not a
server software, you cannot rely on that it's available of the time.
