Hi,

I have a Exchange 2010 and Windows Server 2008.

I have a customer who wants to disable/uninstall completely Out Of  Office on webmail ( and Outlook obviously ).

He wants that when a user access to Webmail ( OWA ), do not see the option to set OOF, or see the option but can't configure it.

I've been searching a lot, and I've only managed to remove the out of office externally, but internally still works and customers can configure for Webmail (OWA).

Anyone know any way?

Thank you in advance.

and Regards,

I don't think it is possible to disable it completely.
You cannot remove it from OWA.
The only option available to you will be to create a transport rule so that OOTO messages are blocked. The users can still set them, but they will not be sent.

Thank you Simon,

I known about the transport rule, the rule i am thinking is :

 from users that are ‘inside the organization’

              and sent to users that are ‘inside the organization’

                           and if the message type is ‘Automatic Reply’

                                        Delete the message without notifying anyone.

When you say OOTO, do you say this, or exist other possibility ?

Thank you,

That rule should work fine.
