Out of Office Reply only works inside office

Hello,

We are using SBS 2003 with Exchange. We also have GFI Mail Essentials.

Users can setup their out of office replies via the Out of Office Assistant without any problems. They are able to turn on the OOF replies.

The problem is that only the users that are inside the Exchange organization actually get the OOF reply. If someone outside the office sends to the email, NO OOF reply is generated.

Any thoughs on this.

Thanks.

This is by design - it confirms/attracts spam to send OOF to the internet - the above link will show how to enable it - at your own risk

Thanks for the fast response. I don't even remember when this was turned off or why. It had to be turned off because it did work at one time.

Anyway thanks again. That fixed it.
