It seems that Out of Office Messages are not being sent from Outlook when mail is automatically being forwarded to another mailbox or contact on Exchange.

This seems pretty logical.  I just wanted to know if there is a way to allow Out of Office Messages to be sent.  if so, is it a bad idea?

We have acquired a new office which uses Google mail.  Initially we established mail contacts for their email addresses and configured Exchange mailboxes for each person as well.  Then we set the Exchange mailbox to automatically forward to their Google mailbox.  Seems to work fine except when they need to set an out of office message.

Any thoughts?  Thanks
