BUT.....
Have you considered FULLY the security issues behind sending OOOR's OUTSIDE of your org?
You are giving info to people that could potentially be used for social engineering attacks and validating email addresses for spammers and phishers....
Think hard

I had the user go into her OWA and disable the OOTO messages.  I then restarted the Micosoft Exchange Transport Service, then re-enabled the OOTO via the OWA.  And messages started working.

OK.  I may have closed too soon.  If we disable the OOTO msgs, save , then re-enable them, it sends 1 OOTO externally, then stops sending them.  Any ideas?

You mean only 1 to a certain individual or only 1 no matter how many people email the account?
OOOR's DO only send ONCE to each sender
