Hi All,

The Help says that I can find under Extras the Abwesenheits-Assistent (I'm using the german version)
Under Extras I see only the option Rules (Regeln) but there's no Out of Office
The mailserver is running under Linux.

I can change the Out of Office message from other user on the mailserver:
I change to the user's home folder and enter vi vacation.msg

Thanks,

Outlook is a Windows program and doesn't even run with wine under Linux. Maybe it is possible to run using crossover office, but I haven't yet tried that. Anyway, that probably doesn't really relate to your Question, but if you say the mailserver server is running on Linux, you should tell us what mailserver it is.

If you use Sendmail, the feature you want is called "vacation message".  

However no matter what mail server program you use, Outlook doesn't tie in enough to allow the user to make this change to enable / disable their vacation message on the server.  The user would have to use a separate way to get in to the server and enable / disable their vacation settings.

But let us know what mail server you use if you want further info on setting it up.

Yes you're right, the user is using another way to fill in the Out of Office.
There are Sun Solaris servers and the Apllication server has a program where the users can set the Out of Office.

OK, but we will still need to know what mail server software you are running, in order to help.  Is it Sendmail, Exim, or something else?

Since the Out of Office was found, the problem is solved for me.

To your question:
I'm one of the administrators for that server, too but I only now that this is a Linux server and the mail program is MS Outlook.
If you'd tell me how to check the mail software under Linux I'd search for it.
