I have an exchange 2010 server with out of office configured.  However, users are reporting that when they have their Out of office configured, only people internal to the organization receive out of office replies.  The server does not seen to generate an out of office reply for external addresses.

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

Let me check that because I had also setup a sender to bypass our mail filter and so far, that is the only one I have been able to get to work.
