Outlook 2010 Out of Office

I have a user that would like to send out of office messages only to senders from outside of the organisation - using Outlook 2010 on Exchange 2010.

I can see in the 'out of office' section I can choose the other way around, to only send to people inside the company however this time I need it to only go to people outside.

I imagine there is a way to do this in rules, however I can't figure it out.

Thanks,

Alex

Dont think thats possible via Outlook or OWA\Webmail .... maybe some kind of rule that might work ... but need to work and check that.

Let us know if your stuck i can try with rule for "reply using server" ..... as Outlook might not be available al the time :)

wolfcamel, thanks, that's seems to have worked, putting the exception on senders in the Global Address Book.

The only downside to this is the messages get marked as read as they reply with a template for the out of office message.

I guess this is the only way - it would be ideal if the messages weren't marked as read.

Actually not an issue - the user is happy to mark as unread.

Thanks again.
