Exchange 2010 out of office not working

Hi,

I have seen the issue defined in a number of places and have confirmed I am configured correctly, or so it seems.

I cannot get outlook office assistant to send an out of office message but the email does arrive in the inbox.  Rules do work fine.

Please help!

Hi,  No errors that I can see, the OOF does not get sent.  This hotfix is not designed for 2008R2 and the servers housing the CAS servers are 2008 R2.
Any other help?

follow these steps to add registry data to the Outlook 2007 clients:

   1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
   2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Options\Calendar
   3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
   4. Type UseLegacyFB, and then press ENTER.
   5. Right-click UseLegacyFB, and then click Modify.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I meant to post in the other post that the registry mod to force the use of public folders also did not work.  But free and busy infor between the 2003 and 2010 environment does work.
Rules work too. HELP!!

Does anyone have any further comments on this issue. It seems to be a known issue with 2010 that OOF has issues.  Any solutions other than what is already posted?
