Out of Office configuration relies on EWS and the Address Book for a lot of features, so any mailbox that does not appear on the address lists will not be able to utilize the Out of Office capabilities of Exchange server. Such users would need to create a custom Inbox rule in outlook to create an automated response to messages, and the response will be sent every time a message is received, as opposed to just the first time, like it is with out of office.

Thanks for the solution.  But the issue in our case was that mails were directly being forwarded to another mailbox.
