For an admin, yes. Use the ECP with an admin account, then change the user, and you'll see OoO in the panel at the right.
You can do with Powershell, too.

Hi,
You can set OOF from powershell
Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration <alias> -AutoReplyState enabled -ExternalAudience all -InternalMessage <Message to internal senders> -ExternalMessage <Message to external senders>

Open in new window


Please check for details
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2667296

You can assign full permission and configure OOF from outlook.
Add-MailboxPermission -Identity "Terry Adams" -User RaySam -AccessRights Fullaccess -InheritanceType all

Open in new window

Please check this for details.

My hope was to find a privilege I could give to one user to activate ooo for another, but I guess it's only possible for a system administrator.  
Too bad.  Both Groupwise and Tobit David allow this.

Thanks anyway.
