Terminal Server Outlook Out of Office Assistant issue

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I have a group of users who are having problems toggling their out of office assistant on and off when they are logged in to the terminal server. When they are in the office they use their local machine to log on to the domain. From there no one seems to have any issues using the out of office assistant. They can turn it on and off at will. However, to log on to the domain remotely they use the terminal server. If they turn the assistant on from their desktop the y cannot turn it off from the terminal server. It locks up their outlook. They still receive email but cannot open it, nor can they close Outlook. To get out of it they have to stop the Outlook process. Then when they restart Outlook on the terminal server the assistant will be turned off and Outlook works as normal. I am under the impression that this is a permissions issue because it does not happen to the domain admins. However, as a test I added one of the affected users to the domain admins group with no success. I have been wrestling with this for about a week. Any ideas?
