Your automatic reply settings cannot be displayed

Hi all,

I have a problem that has just started affecting Outlook 2013 clients only. When they go to set their Out of Office, they get the following error

"Your automatic reply settings cannot be displayed"


As stated this only affect Outlook 2013 clients, all our Outlook 2007 clients are ok and logging in via OWA for the affect users, they are able to set their Out of Office

Can anyone help?

Thanks

I have one user where this is the case in a network where everyone else does not have this issue.  They are able to change it via the webmail.

I looked around quite a bit for a solution to this.  So far the only thing suggested to me that I haven't tried is to delete and recreate the user and re-import their email and re-configure outlook, but this particular user has a giant mailbox.

I can totally understand if you don't want to try this :-)  But if you do, and/or you find a different solution, I'm subscribed to this thread to see.

Hi,

I tried this by using a fresh install, however the problem still occurred. Unfortunately I'm unable to determine when this problem start :(

If you're willing to try it, back up their mailbox by exporting to a PST, delete their entire mailbox from the server, recreate the user, and re-import the PST.

The later versions of Outlook are a lot pickier about the SSL certificate. It has to be spot on with trust levels to work correctly.

Simon,

We last changed our SSL certificate (self-signed) in June and it's defiantly been working since then. However what should I be checking?

The problem is only when using Outlook 2013, setting up the user on 2007 works fine.

Start with the exchange connectivity test.  If its a certificate error, it should show up.

I've tested this and getting the error below (although I can still connect to exchange remotely).

Certificate Error
Any ideas where this certificate if likely to be installed.

I've also noticed this problem also affects seeing "Free/Busy" information of other users. Therefore I can at least say the problem has occurred in the last couple of weeks as I was showing a user recently how to schedule an appointment using my Outlook 2013 client

Who issued the SSL certificate?
That error from the analyser is pretty clear - there is a problem with building the chain. I would check whether any required intermediate certificate is in place.

Simon,

I'm not all that confident on certificates. All the certificates used by the exchange server appear to be valid for another few years and nothing has expired in the past couple of weeks since the problem arose. All the certificates are self signed, any idea where I need to start looking?

Thanks
Simon Butler (Sembee)

Self Signed certificates shouldn't really be used for Exchange, particularly if you are allowing external access (OWA, ActiveSync, Outlook Anywhere). They should be considered place holders at best.
The fact that it has been working fine in the past doesn't mean that it was the correct thing to do or that it will continue to work fine.

Do you get any SSL prompts in your environment at all? If so, are they from your server or an external server?

If you continue to insist on using a self signed certificate then the results from the Microsoft testing tool are useless to you, because they will trip over the certificate because it untrusted.

Your best option is to deploy a trusted SSL certificate - you can get a suitable one for less than $60/year.

@Simon thanks for all your feedback

@PMG554 as I expected an update was the issue, but a day of searching the web I couldn't find anything. Many thanks for your solution, luckily I only have 3 users out of 200 using Office 2013

This is the 2nd big screw up in the past couple of months.

The seems to be no QA whatsoever going on with these patches.
