Out of Office assistant Outlook 2010

    Question

  • Good day,

    I have a quick question regarding the out of office assistant in Outlook 2010.

    I would like to have a notification appear when you send to someone inside the organization that is out of office. 

    When I am out of office and someone inside my company sends me an email they should receive a notification stating that I am out of office as they type in my email address.

    Could somebody please assist me with the set up off this?

    I would really appreciate the assistance as this has been bugging me for quite a while.

    Thanking you in advance.

  • When the user starts typing the email address -> Mail tip will be showing

    I hope your organization is using Exchange Server

    Set-OrganizationConfig -MailTipsAllTipsEnabled $true

    This command will enable mail tip where if a sender is typing an email to recipients where if recipients mailbox is set for Out of office or mailbox is over the quota then before they send the email using the mail tip users will get the information.

  • Hi There,

    Thank you for the response, however I have set it up that way. When setting up the "inside my organization" message it sends an email to the users with an out of office email reply.

    That is not quite what I am looking for. What I am looking for is that when the user starts typing the email address a message pops up with the out of office message.

    Does that make any sense?

    Regards
