    Out of Office Message

    My administrator set a rule on our Exchange Server that only email addresses in our own domain will receive Out of Office messages. I understand that this is a preventative measure to control spam. Unfortunately, I have clients that need to know when I will be out and when I will get back. Is there a way to circumvent that Exchange rule on my local machine? Is there something I can do in my Outlook program to allow certain email addresses the ability to receive my away messages (perhaps a "safe senders" list)? Thanks for any help.

    This needs to be discussed with YOUR Administrators and management.

    We here at Woody's do NOT give advise as to how to go around your employers rules. <img src=/S/sorry.gif border=0 alt=sorry width=15 height=15>

    Whoa now!!! <img src=/S/surrender.gif border=0 alt=surrender width=31 height=23> Please don't misunderstand! My administrator doesn't know how to fix it. If there is something I can tell him to change on the Exchange Server, since I don't have access to it, he is hoping I can find the answer for him. <img src=/S/please.gif border=0 alt=please width=31 height=23>

    Re: Out of Office Message

    The use of "Is there a way to circumvent" lead me to believe that you were doing just that. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>
    But we do need to be very careful <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    The capabilities depend on what software you are using. What version of Exchange and what service pack? What version of Outlook and what service pack?

    The MSKB article I posted a link to should do the trick.

    Unfortunately, with Exchange 2003 & Outlook 2003 it is all or nothing with OOF replies going to the Internet. Either it is allowed for the whole mail domain or not. See Client Features in Exchange 2007 what can be done with the latest version.
