Can you run the following command....
Get-RemoteDomain | fl A*

Open in new window


What does AllowOOFType and Allow Auto Reply configured for? If this is set properly what you might want to do is check the Exchange logs and or your firewall logs to make sure that nothing is being blocked. Aside from an Exchange standpoint nothing else is required.

If you have made this change you can also try restarting the Info Store service which will force Active Directory to update.

 is to send an email to the exchange account from my gmail account it replayed with the out of office message which is now fine  

but if I send a second email with a different subject in the subject box I don't receive a second out of office reply

Out of Office will only send one email per message it receives. Once it sends and email to one email address it will NOT send another out of office reply until it has been turn off and turned on again. At this point the counter is reset.

Another thing by restarting the Exchange server is the same results as restarting the Info store service.
