Out of Office does not work for external senders. It is no problem for internal users to get out-of-office notification. Please advice. Thanks.

Good deal... just remember the security risks of this approach.

Hacker spams your accounts, get 30 OOO replies and then knows he/she can try to hack into your network via these accounts, as these users will not complain of being locked out because they are on vacation. It's a variation of the war dialing approach.

By default, the out-of-office reply to Internet recipients is turned off. Many administrators do not allow out-of-office replies to be sent outside the Exchange Server organization, so that unauthorized people do not know when users are out of the office.

RESOLUTION
To turn on out-of-office replies to the Internet, follow these steps:
On the Exchange server, start Exchange System Manager.
Double-click Global Settings, and then click Internet Message Formats.
In the Details pane, right-click a domain name, and then click Properties. The default SMTP domain is "*".
In the Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab, and then click to select the Allow out of office responses check box. This turns on out-of-office responses to the Internet for the selected domain.
Stop the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) and Microsoft Exchange Routing Engine services, and then restart them.
