Turn on Automatic Replies (Out of Office) via command line or something similar RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm an intern and was asked to setup an out of office message for when I am in class. Every now and again I forget to toggle this message so when I come in at 3 PM and people thought I'd be there at 8 AM they rage to my boss about me not responding in a timely manner.

    So what I want to do is setup some kind of cron job with task scheduler, maybe internally with Outlook, or some other time based trigger that will let me configure when the out of office will be posted.

    The end result would be something like Mon/Wed turn off at 9 AM, turn on at 2:30 PM; Tues/Thurs turn off at 3:30 PM, turn on at 8:00 PM.

    Any thoughts?

    EDIT: Not sure why this is posted in the Exchange Admin forums, and I don't see how to move it... I selected Microsoft Office when I submitted.
