Outlook out of office message is different than one created

I have a user that uses Outlook 2010, along with our 2010 Exchange setup, when they create an out of office message, the automatic reply sends the message they created AND some erroneous message, they may or may not have created this extra message in the past (cant recall), and its a composed sentenced so its not some random characters. However, I've checked his out of office settings, and rules, nothing exists with this message. No rules whatsoever are created, other than the out of office automatic one that's there when enabled. The PC is windows 7 64bit. Creating a new OST has not helped.

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Export the rules then try
Outlook /cleanrules
That should flush any rules and OOF message
Then create an OOF message and test.

Have you checked the Exchange 2010 transport rules to see if a rule exists that appends that text?
