    There are known issues with out of office when cached mode is enabled in Microsoft Outlook (google it, you will find many results). Please try to disable cached mode (if it is enabled now) to test if that is the problem.

    i have tried setting it up via OWA instead, would this not rectify the issue or at least be a way round it ?

    I will look this issue up

    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.
