      Block connection to outlook exchange at a given schedule?

      Hello
      I'm trying to restore a bit of work/home balance by having my router block access to my work web domain at given time of day, eg 8pm to 8am. I've got this working fine, but now I'd also like to block my ability to retrieve email from the exchange server at these times too. Any ideas as to how to do this?

      Ps clearly I have zero will power to simply not look at my email

      To achieve this you would need to set up two things on your router:

      The first is the block.

      The second would be a schedule so that the block only operates between 8pm and 8am.

      The specific instruction on doing this will vary with the model router and firmware you have installed.

      Obviously you appear to have completed this for the web site. It should be a simple case of adding the email server's details too.
