Out of Office sending auto replies even though it's not turned on

clcuser used Ask the Experts™
Two of our staff members enabled their Out of Office auto replies while on vacation.  Since coming back & turning the auto reply off, the emails are still being sent out.  We've gone into each staff members account & tried turning it on then off again but it still sends out the auto reply.

Have you run Outlook with the cleanrules switch?

Start - Run - Type...   outlook.exe /cleanrules
Give OWA a try...
The rule may be corrupt.  You can use MFCMAPI to remove it.  Here is a link which explains: http://exchangeshare.wordpress.com/2007/05/27/delete-corrupted-out-of-office-rule-with-mfcmapi/
I second mittermueller's suggestion, it may have been set in OWA.


The cleanrules switch worked.  Thanks for all of the responses.
