i have a user that has no OOO set, and has deleted all their rules, but their account still sends an old OOO.

I checked OWA and there is nothing set either. I ran mfcmapi and didn't find a bad OOO template.

Any thoughts where to check?

I assume the OOO is definitely coming from their email address? You may want to check Transport Rules on the Exchange server itself. Maybe someone set something up server side, in that any messages inbound to that user get a reply that looks like an OOO.

Try this from the Outlook client:

Outlook.exe /CleanRules

If the client has rules existing you might want to back them up, as this would actually delete them all. This should clear out that pesky OOO issue you are having.

Cheers!

Try opening Outlook with the switch /cleanrules.
 
1) Disable automatic replies for all mailboxes in E2k3 from Organization level
2) Remove affected OOO on account by account basis
3) Work with EMWProf switch to see if there is an option to turn off OOO/Automatic Replies.
