Hi,

Please clarify; By 'letters' do you mean emails or attached documents?

I mean emails.
Ok ... after a little digging found these two options:

First of all .... Outlook 2007 and 2010 rely on the Autodiscover feature in Exchange 2010 to manage Out of Office settings so this needs to be setup and working correctly for the feature to work, try running the MS Exchange Connectivity tester to see if there are any problems:

Make sure that 'autodiscover' is added to the forward lookup zone for your DNS and then check again.

Good Luck,

We use Exchange. Proxy is configured. Its strange because I´ll recive letters when I change some letter position in webmail (owa).
Ok ... was the rule create on from within Outlook or from within OWA.

When creating them from Outlook they are server-side rules that then sync to OWA, check that the sync is done correctly.

Next check that if you have multiple rules,  remove all other rules temporarily and check that their is not a logic-flow problem between the rules that is ending them too early.

Good Luck
