Out of Office not turned off as scheduled
Hi Everyone,

I am currently having a problem with Out of Office replies.

Everyone is using XP with the exception of 2 x Windows 7 machines. All the computers are using Office 2010 and connected to a SBS 2008 server.

Before the festive period everyone set Out of Office replies to come on and turn off according to a schedule. Most people used Outlook to accomplish this task but I added a out of office to a few emails using Outlook Web Access.

This was all done on the day we left and was all tested before closing up shop. Everyone upon return discovered that the out of office didn't turn off on the specified date, even the ones done by Outlook Web Access, and was still on after a day of returning.

Is there a reason for this?

I'd like to get this working and tested so the out of office turns off when scheduled for the next time the company closes for any period of time.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Re: Out of Office not turned off as scheduled
There are certain links I can provide you which can help you to find solution for the issue. Basically when you enable the schedule time for Out Of Office it goes off in the prescribed date. Check the settings once again. I had not noticed any bug in this tool. Check the below link. It consist of a full guide for this process.
