Exch on a SBS 2003r we have about 40 users.
On ONE user when she goes to the Out of Office assistant an error message comes up "Your AutoReply message could not be displayed. The client operation failed". then the out of office asst. comes up. when you change a setting or type in the message you get an error "Changes to the rules could not be saved. There is not enough memory or the rules are too complex. Try deleting some rules"
Then when i cancel i get the message that some rules were modified are you sure you wish to discard your changes.

There are no outlook rules for this user. WS is using outlook xp (althought i logged into another comp with her roaming profile with outlook 2003 and same errors). Only happening on this one user.

need to get the out of office running, otherwise she cant go on vacation...
Thanks for any help you can provide
Joe

Joe,

I've read elsewhere that these types of problems can be fixed by logging into that user's account through OWA and setting the out-of-office-assistant up.  Give that a try.  In OWA  it's found in "options".

when i try that the OWA gives me this error

"Your Out of Office message can't be saved because your server limit on rules has been reached. Delete one or more rules, and then try again"

saw a posting from sembee from a while back that i should export the mail, delete the mailbox, recreate it and import the mail from the pst. did it and i think it worked...if anyone knows a better way though, by all means please comment

my comment from above worked, but thank you for your input Jim, believe it or not it helped in understanding that it was a server rule based situation and not outlook because the OWA trick didn't work. sometimes something not working teaches as much about the issue as something working. thanks again
