Start disabling any add-ins on Outlook.

Most likely on of them is causing the issue.

pramod1Author Commented:

pramod1Author Commented:

pramod1Author Commented:
whether in normal or safe mode oof is on when I keep open the outlook but as soon as I close the outlook and open again it goes off
Scott CSenior EngineerCommented:
Try creating a new profile in Outlook and see how it goes.

Also, try logging in on another computer and see if it works as it should.
Scott CSenior EngineerCommented:
As a work-around you could always create a rule to reply with the Out of Office Message.
pramod1Author Commented:
what add on should I disable , pretty confused
pramod1Author Commented:
create a rule to reply with the Out of Office Message.

don't see any specific rule with regard to oof
Scott CSenior EngineerCommented:
I posted a link on disabling add-ons, but if it does it in Safe Mode, then add-ons aren't the issue.

It's possible there is corruption in the Outlook profile, that's why I suggested creating another Outlook profile and see how things go.

I also suggested logging onto another computer, that will tell you if it's an issue with the mailbox or something on that machine.

There's not.  You'd have to create a rule to reply to any and all messages.  It's a work-around and not perfect.  It will reply to any and all emails sent.

created new profile didn't work
Scott CSenior EngineerCommented:
Try logging onto a different computer.  If the issue follows, then try doing a New Mailbox Repair Request.

can I repair outlook on users machine as I don't have access to server
pramod1Author Commented:
Scott CSenior EngineerCommented:
No.  A mailbox repair request has do be done from an Exchange Power Shell.

You asked about repairing Outlook...I'm assuming you meant the mailbox.
pramod1Author Commented:
her off is working now but by default it is reverting to some old message now
pramod1Author Commented:
he puts in new message but after some time old message comes back in
Scott CSenior EngineerCommented:
What did you do to get the out of office working?

I have no idea why an old notification would come back.
pramod1Author Commented:
I am confused too, I deleted user profiles, ran outlook.exe/clean rules and checking again
