    Outlook 2003: Can't turn off "Out of Office" message

    I can't turn off my "Out of Office" message. I get a pop up that says "The command is not available" " See program documentation..." It worked until just recently. Should I suspect an update?

    See if "I receive an error message when I click the Out of Office Assistant command." at Troubleshoot the Out of Office Assistant helps.

    Bruce:
    Thanks for the suggestion.
    The message I get is not "I receive an error message when I click the Out of Office Assistant command," but "the command is not available..." I checked your above suggestion link, and I am showing working online, and I show "connected" & " all folders are up to date" regarding the server connection. I am able to send & receive emails, I just can't open the assistant.

    Well, that could be the same thing.

    You do connect to an Exchange server though?

    Try the resolution for "The command is not available. See the program documentation about how to use this extension." at:

    You receive an error message when you try to start the Out of Office Assistant in Outlook 2003
