Exchange 2007 Out of Office assitant not working externally.

Hello, Our out of office assistant is only working internally on Exchange server 2007.   I have not made any changes to any settings regarding out of office so I believe this must be a default setting.  This is running on windows server 2003 R2 x64.

    In Exchange 2007 you can select if the OOO should go to internal only, external only or both. I don't have the Manager here but you should be able to find the setting.

    I read that you can choose one or the other or both.  And I beleive that it is under hup transport, Remote domains properties.  But the definitions arnt making sense to me.  Because right now it says Allow external out of office messages only.  And it is not functioning.  I have read that the default for exchange 2003 is that they are disabled externally, and that makes sense.

    Note that OOO messages only go out ONCE to each sender. Maybe that is the problem?

    I changed the setting under remote domain to the last option which allows internal and external OOO messages to be sent by outlook 2003 clients and it works
