The issue is with and certificate settings. Outlook 2007/2010 Out Of Office Assistant and Automatic Reples are depending on autodiscover settings. If your outlook clients cannot resolve to Exchange Server, Out Of Office Assistant will not work.

To resolve this issue, first of all make sure that you have a valid certificate for which must have additional SAN name for You can get these SAN based certificate (Unified Communicatin Certificate) from or Install these certificate on your Exchange CAS Server. Make sure that your internal & external DNS (ISP DNS) Servers can resolve to Exchange CAS Server. Outlook clients from local lan as well as from internet can resolve correctly. These changes will make your out of office assistant to work.

If you already have these settings configured, please test your exchange server by for all settings.
Try installing SP1 to your Exchange server if you havent already done so. It fixes alot of issues, including the one you are describing. Are you already running SP1?
