Not possible. Out of the Office is not controlled by Group Policy/Registry. It is a mailbox setting which can be set through Outlook, OWA or ActiveSync. The only method is to publish the text required in the company handbook or other offline method.

@Simon Butler thank you for your reply.

Could you tell me what you mean with:

Do you mean that we need to have a default out of office text send to users so they can copy + paste them into their out of office text?

I would like to thank you in advance.

That is correct - it cannot be pre-populated.
