Out of office reply

Hi Experts,

when a user is out of office, then they switch on the OUT of OFFICE (OOF) reply from Office.
We use Office 2010.
When a sender sends an email this sender gets once an OOF.
Is it possible to get this reply with each email , always ?

A user gets a oof message once per day. This prevents the situation where a user sends and email and then goes out of office.. the recipient sends the OOF to the sender, and the sender  then sends an OOF which will now result in an infinite loop.

David, it seems that it was "once a day" pre Exchange 2007 (plus SP?). see e.g. the comment of MrBIL at http://community.spiceworks.com/topic/333071-exchange-2010-outlook-2007-out-of-office-autoreply-frequency, and nowadays is a single event per OoO enable.

OOF will only reply once per sender for the entire time OOF is enabled. (not per day) Turning OOF off and back on will "reset the counter" for all senders.
Thanks for the tip Qlemo
