Windows XP running Office XP. When my users tries to access Out of Office Assistant they get the following error.

The command is not available. See the program documentation about how to use this extension.

I found this same problem here on EE.

but it did not resolve my problem. I have no resiliancy subkey to rename.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

The Out of Office Assistant is only available if you use Microsoft Exchange Server for your email server.  If you are not using Exchange, try the following to emulate the Out of Office Assistant:

sajuks,

Sorry, the link that I posted indicating that it didn't resolve me problem actually DID resolve it. I was looking to change a value instead of a key as the link instructed. I guess when all else fails carefully read the instructions.

Thanks
