Is the option to allow OOTO messages to external recipients enabled within Exchange? It isn't enabled by default.

ESM, Global Settings, Internet Message Formats.
Right click on Default and choose Properties.
Click on the tab Advanced and enable "Allow out of office responses". You do NOT have to enable Allow Automatic Replies or Allow Automatic Forwards.

Apply/Ok out and wait about 15 minutes or so before testing.
