Out of Office

Hello,

We are using Outlook 2010 in the Exchange 2010 environment. I have a user who is setting thier Out of Office Message and the following is appearing: "Your automatic reply settings cannot be displyed because the server is currently unavailable. Try again later"

Ran the Office Repair and Outlook repair, did not fix the problem.

Thanks,

VSACIT

have you tried creating a user test user profile to see if it does the same thing in a brand new user. if it does then there is definitely some kind of issue with office suite otherwise it would be profile related.

Let's perform the following steps to troubleshoot this OOF problem

Step 1: verify name resolution and proxy:
==============================
1. On client computer, try to ping mail.domain.com in command prompt, make sure the correct Internal IP address returns.
2. On client computer, open IE, click Tools -> internet options -> Connections -> LAN Settings
3. Please check if IE proxy is configured. If it is, please disable proxy, restart Outlook and test E-mail Autoconfiguration.

[Collect AutoConfiguration Status in Outlook]

a. While Outlook is running, click the CTRL key and then right-click the Outlook icon in the system tray and then select “Test Email Autoconfiguration”.
b. Confirm that your email address is in the address field, uncheck “Use Guessmart” and “secure Guessmart authentication” boxes. Then click the “Test” button.
c. Once it runs, please post screen shot of the Log tab and Results tab.
