    Has this user enabled OOO on any other user's mailboxes in your organization and neglected to turn it back off?

    Does this user have a replica located somewhere that still has his OOO on?

    OOO in R 6 and above is handled on the Server, and the user ID has to match the Mail DB owner.

    It could be caused by a corrupt profile in the mail DB.

    There is an IBM technote on this somewhere...

    The same agent runs the OOO responses and sends the "turn me off" reminder, so obviously, it really is working somewhere.  If there is an OOO reply somewhere related to this, then I would turn on message trakcing, find the source server for the message, and examine the server lig carefully to see what agent sent the message out at the indicated time.

    You could do it without message tracking as well, by examining the create/route times on the created message.

    Depending on the version you can slo do this with the turn me off.message, since in most versions it is actually mailed, not just dumped in the mail file (don't ask me why... do they really need rules and hygiene to hit the reminder?)
