outlook out of office

Dennis Miller
Dennis Miller asked
I have a user that was terminated and the manager wants to put an out of office notation that would tell the mailer's that she is no longer answering the emails but you can email to this address. Since the account now has an X in front of the email to show it was disabled, how could I best get that out of office to tell the clients.

It would really be easier to just forward the terminated user's address to another account instead of keeping it open, BUT to answer your question, the easiest way to do this:

1. Re-enable her account in exchange
2. Login as her or login via webmail (if you have it setup)
3. Set an out of office (autoreply) message


Excellent answer and the best answer.
