Looking for way to enable OOO and only have it go out for one of the 20 internal Domains we host.

OOO is a Global Setting and we do send all mail out to a smarthost

Any ideas on OOO that could limit it to one Domain

Thank you the Emulation and having to have Outlook 2003 Client running is a limitation to the rule.

We are all on Exchange 2003 SP2 with outlook 2003 SP2 client.

Does the Outlook 2007 Feature you mention require Exchange 2007 on the back End ?

Looks like a good possibility only delima I see is that Outlook Client has to be running for it to work.  With People OOO they usually take their PC with them.

I did find that if we enable the OOO and then at our outbound Gateway have a rule that drops all messages with a FROM of  @xxxxx.com  and subject of Out of Office AutoReply:   it is one workaround.
