Hi,

could you give more infos about your infrastructure ?
is the person still connected with her Outlook opened while out of the office ?
what's the Outlook version ? What version of exchange do you use ?

Maybe this could help :http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/rules/make-automatic-reply-rules/

Cheers

Check if there are Transport Rules on your server that deal with OOO-Messages
Check too if the user has set up some Rules on their own...

hi,
Sorry but it was my only idea about :)
could you post some exchange logs about the transport of the 2 mails ?
(like message tracking log of the OOO answers, and so on... ) ?

Cheers

Hey Thomas, i like Idea people :)

Sorry but the issue is that when someone send email to this user Internal\External they get 2 Out-Of-Offie emails .... not sure what what Transport logs you want ?

Sorry i can share some basic error as this client isnt allowing to share internal data :(

Vicky,

you can use the powershell commandlet "get-messagetrackinglog -sender <the mail address of the absenty here>" to get the  log
don't forget to format list it and just take the 2 mails sent as OOO message
you can eventually stripe out the private infos as long as they are not different for the same attribute :) (if you find a difference for the same attribute, this could be the reason of the glitch...)

Cheers
Thomas

ok,

sorry if i made things a bit harder.

could you launch the command :
(get-messagetrackinglog -sender <the absenty mail here>)[0..2]
| fl *

this will give you the details foreach mail.
then you'll need to verify it's that they're the OOO answer sent to the same mail (they'll have the same objects and recipients...)
once you've confirmed that you have the logs for the 2 OOO message the absenty's mailbox sent, you'll be able to compare them and find if there are some differences...

cheers

The only different i see is the SubjectID that says 2 OOO emails are surely going to recipients
