Exchange 2010 Automatic Replies

Hi experts,

I have a question regarding Automatic Replies or OOF on Exchange server.

We are using Exchange 2010, majority of our users are using Outlook 2013 some are still 2010, but I don't think that matters.

My question is that I have forwarded all User1 emails to User2, if User2 went on holiday and set OOF on his account, will any sender to User1 receive the same OOF from User2? I.e. is OOF being rely automatically and is there a way to stop this rely?

Many thanks for your help.

Sender will not receive OOF of User2.
Only user1 can receive this OOF.

No, OOF is set on the user1 mailbox and the rule applies to that.  OOF works at the connector level and as soon as message is received, it will send OOF notification.   This is followed by other rules you may have set.
