HI sushil,

thanks for the reply . i have followed your document and learnt how to setup the automatic replies . however in my case once i click on the autmatic replies in the file menu  the next thing i get is the following error message :

" your automatic reply settings cannot be displayed because the server is currently unavailable. try again later"

 the document you were recommending only provides the information of how to  use automatic replie feature .

anyways thanks for your time .

Firstly, hope that Out-Of-Office works with OWA\Webmail ?
Secondly, all Exchange services are running ?
Thirdly, check TestEmailAutoConfiguration
Fourthly, do you get an error or you are able to set but doesnt work.
