Out of Office reminder

Post by agibsonsw »

Hello. (Outlook 2007)

I understand that the Out of Office Assistant no longer prompts to switch it off when you return to the office. Is it possible to re-instate this behaviour
without having to set up a separate rule or reminder?
Unfortunately, I'm not connected to an Exchange Server so am unable to investigate this easily myself. Thanks, Andy.

Exchange Server 2007 introduces the option to set a start and end date/time for Out of Office. If you specify the end date/time, Out of Office will turn itself off automatically when the end date/time has passed.
Hence the popup dialog prompting you to turn off Out of Office isn't really necessary any more. It has been replaced with a message in Outlook's status bar.
