I was trying to work out if there's a way to automatically disable my work email account on my phone at 7pm of a Friday, and turn it back on at 7am on the Monday. At the minute I've been doing it manually but it would be great if it could happen automatically.

I took a look at Shortcuts but couldn't find a way to do it. Any ideas?

Maybe use a different app for that email account from your other ones?

I looked at something like this too and ended up with my personal email being in one app and my work email in a different one, Outlook mobile. Then I set it to never notify me and not have app icons. This means I have to manually check it but really, during the business day I am anyway. I don't have anything critical come via email either. Those are Teams messages which normally tell me to look at and email.

In short, I haven't seen a good option either.

Yeah, that might be the way to deal with it.

Outlook/Exchange supports scheduled auto-responses, but I guess you’re more looking to avoid seeing any of that in e.g. notifications?
