I have searched and searched and have turned up nothing but the same question I have.  

Office Communicator can sense when I am in meetings and it says I am away, why can we not have an option to select whether Outlook does this or not.  One would think MS could program a simple Check Box to say, enable Automatic Out of Office Messaging or not.  

I almost think this is becoming an necessity in today's Outlook based world.

Question, with all the programming minded people on here, has anyone created a small program or work process that will allow an "out of office message " to be sent when the program reads that you are scheduled for a meeting or out of office?

Apparently with 2007 Exchange and 2007 Outlook it can be done and I'd assume Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2010.

But if you have older versions combined it can't.

It could be done via script with older versions of Exchange, but not sure if the scripts will work with newer versions of Exchange.  See link below:
