We are using Active Directory with Exchange 2003. Is there a flag in Active Directory for users that are "Out of Office" in Outlook?

Not that I'm aware of.  I tried it with my mailbox and checked in AD users and computers and in Exchange System Manager and couldn't find anything.  Not finding anything on yahoo groups, google groups, or a google search either.

I'm not sure.  I'm not aware of any 3rd party software that will do this either.  I guess you could always post this question in the MSexchange.org forums @ http://forums.msexchange.org/

They have a lot of other helpful exchanges articles and walkthroughs also.
