After try and error based on link: http://www.msexchange.org/articles-tutorials/exchange-server-2007/tools/troubleshooting-out-of-office.html

I found out that when OOF disabled on Outlook,

1. the " cd: " PR_BODY property corresponding to the user’s actual Out of Office message, as well as a PR_MESSAGE_CLASS property of IPM.Note.Rules.Oof.Template.Microsoft still exit - Action taken delete it

2. Enable OOF back on Outlook - Sent a test mail. Now OOF for external is working but not Internal, 1st attempt able to provide OOF but second and continously, it is working.

I think OOF was corrupted or configuration. How to fix it? My last solution is create a new mailbox for user.

Please advice.
