Out of office Assistant not working !

I'm currently having problems with a group of users who cannot get the 'Out of office assistant' to reply to internal and external incoming mails, even though it is activated to send out.  We have an windows 2000 network, Exchange 2000(SP3) and we are using Office XP(SP2).  All user mailboxes on Exchange are configured identically, but for these particular users it does not work. I want to leave re-creating the network profiles as a last resort.

Has anyone come across this problem before? any suggestions?

Try to use CleanSweep utility on the user's outlook who has the Out of Office problem.  It should work.
