Hi all,

Have a problem with our exchange, clients/users, After updating our exchange server some months ago we have stumbled accross a problem, which lets some users use the out of office reply and others not. What i mean is that all user can knock it on, but for only some clients function others not. All clients are using same setup outlook 2000, on exch2000. I tried using cleansweep to no avail. I also used exmaerge to make a pst. then deleted mail box, made a new mail box for the same user and merged the mail back into exchange, still the same problem. The other solution I am dwelling on is to 1. delete user mail box, and 2. delete account in active directory but this could lead to a lot of work. Has anyone experienced this problem, and found a solution.

Thx in advance
Hughie.

What about a new mailbox without importing the data back in. If you are having a problem with the structure, (Hidden section of MB where rules live) and you chose to exmerge "associated folder messages", it will pull the problem rules out, which will merge right back in. Try the OOF rule with a new mailbox BEFORE merging the data back in....

If this fixes it, then on the remaining users having the problem, run exmerge and "Archive" "associated folder messages" to get rid of any bad rules.
