Temporarily Disable a user's email account for long absence.

I've got a user who will be gone for 5 weeks. He wants all the email he normally receives to be bounced back to the sender with a message that the user is out of office. And he wants all that incoming email to be deleted. He has a laptop and will be taking it with him.

It is it true that if I set up an "out of Office" rule in his Outlook, that his computer must be on the network and running in order for the rule to run?

How else can I accomplish this request?

Your help is appreciated.

OOF can be setup. Even if the user's computer is switched off the sender will still receive an OOF message.

Simply set up Out of Office for the user and put a 'delete' rule in his mailbox. His PC doesn't have to be on the network for the rule to function. You are attaching the rule to his mailbox, not his outlook client.

Thanks. I misunderstood the requirement for the client to be running. This clears it up for me. I can do this easily.
