Its a server side rule and when its enabled for a particular user and if this user receives an email from internal user it send a OoO email to him/her.

If you wish that external users should also receives an OoO email while they send an email to a user with out of office enabled user in your organization, you need to enable it using following steps

Global Settings > Internet Message Formats > Highlight 'Default' in the right hand pane > select properties > select the Advanced tab > put a check in the 'Allow out of office responses' box.

If same user sends an email twice to OoO enabled user, sender will receive only one email till out of office has not been off and re-enabled.

Regards,

Max

They are generated on the server.
No record is kept.
If you have message tracking enabled, then as an administrator you can see if the OOTO was generated or not. Remember that they aren't generated for every message. If I send you three emails today, then I will only get one OOTO.

How would an administrator check for the message tracking.  (I'm not the admin and our admin may not know how.)

Message tracking needs to be enabled. It isn't on by default.
