Exchange 2010 - how to use the same Out Of Office message for inside and outside my organization

BeerTime asked
Last Modified: 2014-05-11
hi there,

We're using Exchange 2010 and Outlook 2010. Our users are often forgetting to change the Out of Office message separately for inside my organization and outside my organization tabs. I couldn't find a way to keep the same Out Of Office message unless I copy and paste the message under inside my organization and outside my organization tabs.

I am trying to figure out is there a way to keep the Out of Office message the same for both inside my organization and Outside my organization to be the same by default, and give the option to users should they wish to change the message? I would be great if I could force rule this at the exchange global level instead of configuring on each Outlook clients.

Thanks for all your help in advance.
