Hello Everyone,

I recently started work for a company that uses Outlook 2007 on XP for its users, but there is no Exchange server. We setup each user with IMAP IP and port settings.

I believe users cannot have Outlook send out-of-office messages on their behalf if there is no Exchange server. Is this true?

Does anyone know of a workaround?

I have already checked the PC's and there is no option for out-of-office in Tools and most of the usual rules are not even listed. So I cannot create a rule for the server to reply to an incoming email with a message.

PLEASE HELP! IS THERE A WORKAROUND TO GET OOO WORKING IN AN ENVIRONMENT WITHOUT AN EXCHANGE SERVER?
