ExWe have Outlook 2010 and Exchange 2010.

When some of our users is going to disable Out of office repley Outlook is not responding.

If i restart Outlook and holds ctrl and right click the Outlook icon in the system tray and choose test automatic configuration for e-mail (translated from Swedish) and try again it works.

This happens when they push the button in the attached picture.

Best regards

Some of my users were having an issue where they were getting Outlook to freeze when setting or removing OOA, randomly.

I had to update and restart the exchange server, then it seemed to work fine after reboot.

Setting OOA through the Outlook Web Application was the workaround I used until I had a minute to restart the server.

Hope it helps sir.

So Test email auto config is working fine with showing all URL's ?
Hope that System Attendant service isnt crashing and running ?
What all 3rd party softwares and what if you run Outlook in Safe mode or with /cleanrules switch ?

To Rancy

Test email auto config works fine.
System attendant is up and running nice.
No 3rd party softwares.
I have not tried safe mode and the switch. I will try that. This is a random problem for the user so it can take a little bit of time before it shows again.
