"Your Out of Office settings cannot be displayed" URGENT!!

Ohmit used Ask the Experts™
I have a customer with a SBS2008.
All client pc's is running Windows 7 Pro and Office 2007 SP3.

For some strange reason a handfull of these pc's can not switch on the Out Of Office assistant.

I receive this error:
"Your Out of Office settings cannot be displayed, because the server is currently unavailable. Try again later."

I have read Microsofts article KB970123 but that is not it!

This is a VERY urgent matter!! :-)

Almost always incorrect or lack of Autodiscover configuration or autodiscover.domain.loca DNS record missing.
Have you checked these?
Have user log into OWA, then set and clear the OWA setting.

This should fix it so it works from Outlook.  99% of the time.


I have found the solution my self which was far more simple than solutions suggested.

I simply deleted the profile in Outlook and created a new one.
