Hi All

A client of mine is running Windows Server 2008 along with Exchange 2007

When they set their out of office the settings go through ok, however the OOF messages are only sent internally, the external ones don't work even though we have set the internal and external replies.

Any ideas?

Have you set Exchange to allow external OOTO messages?
EMC, Org Config, Hub Transport, Remote Domains.
Double click on Default.
Ensure that it is set to anything but "Allow none".

If that is set, use Message Tracking to see if the OOTO message is going out or not.

Check in OWA to see if the OOTO message is set correctly. I have seen Outlook report that it is, and it isn't.

Simon.
