For some reason my out of office will not send outside of the organization even when I choose to set it up for external recipients. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!

To add an Out of Office message for external senders

    Select the outside my organisation check box.

    Note: This option is available only if you have created an Out of Office message for internal senders.
    Click Contacts list only if you want to limit the external Out of Office auto-replies to senders who are in your Contacts list.
    Click anyone outside my organization if you want to send Out of Office auto-replies to any sender outside your organization.
    Type the message that you want the Out of Office Assistant to send to each sender outside your organization in the text box for senders outside your organization.

Hi,

please check if you have enabled the out of office settings for External users from the Server Organization configuration under remote domains.

Verify each step, that should resolve the issue.
