Out of the Office not activated

I tried several times yesterday to activate the Out of the Office for one employee thru OWA and directly in Outlook and didn't work.

The employee left the company and I disabled his account for a day or two. Then I enabled it again and disabled the OWA.

I tried activating the Oout of the Office by creating a profile in my outlook, accesing his account and going into options... Since that didn't work, I activated OWA, went in and tried... nothing.

What I am doing wrong ?  What it is not being activated ?  I tried sending emails from a Yahoo account but I still don't receive a message back.

I have the domain administrator password.

Thanks
RG

If it works internally, in the ESM go to global settings, internet message formats, properties, advanced, check 'allow out of office responses'.

No, it doesn't work internally.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

i'm assuming out of office works for others?

ok, there are a number of things you can try, what else have you tried thus far?
*create a new profile on a machine, set up this user, run outlook /cleanrules, try again
*change/delete the smtp address on the affected user
*set up a new user, assign the old users smtp address
*retry your out of office with the new user

I tried the first one and didn't work. I won't be able to try the next three because management wants to keep the account open and without any Out of the Office.

I will award you the points as your answer was very good.

Thanks,

RG.
