I have one user who unable to enable OOF via Outlook. Everytime he try, will received below message:

Your Out Of Office settings cannot be display, because the server is currenttly unavailable.Try again later

He able to enable OOF via Outlook Web App.

He did test email-configuration and able to get OOF URL.

What I did so far is:

1. Disable a mailbox then create a new mailbox, open the new mailbox and enable OOF, same error occurred
2. Create a new AD account User01-1, enable mailbox, open the new mailbox and enable OOF, same error occurred
3. Use MCPMAPI to delete the corrupted OOF rules.

Others user doesn't have encountered the issue so I don't think it is the autodiscover issue.

Please help

Corrupt OOF messages can be removed by using a different verison of Outlook , sometimes v2003 works or use Outlook Web App to change the message.

It is possible to programmically set OOF using EWS (Exchange Web Services):

When you open Outlook hold crtl+right click the Outlook icon and select Test Email Auto Config. This will show what Autodiscover URL you are using internally and externally.

Use the following commands on Exchange Mgmt Shell:
Test-OutlookWebServices   servername

This will test Autodiscover, EWS, UM and ActiveSync services on a CAS server.
