I want to perfect this system message the most I can and am over-thinking the use of the proper words.

Is it better to say "Email will be unavailable Saturday 12/29 from 5 PM to 9 PM" or "Email will be unavailable on Saturday 12/29 from 5 PM to 9 PM."

Our client chose the message so I don't want to alter it too much which would make him think his English was bad, but I wish to use the proper way of letting the users know WHEN Email will be unavailable.

So is it 'unavailable Saturday 12/29' or 'unavailable on Saturday 12/29'?

Depending on the context, you may need to alter the email part.

For the sentence part, the correct way is:

Email will be unavailable on Saturday 12/29 from 5PM to 9PM

Usually when talking about days of the week, we say we are on this day.

So is it 'unavailable Saturday 12/29' or 'unavailable on Saturday 12/29'?

Use "unavailable Saturday 12/29". It does not need to be corrected.

If you were writing it I would recommend "unavailable on Saturday 12/29" because that's my preference.
