PowerShell : Enable Auto Reply for a Shared Mail Box


Summary

This TechNet Wiki is based on a TechNet forum Post

Requirement

Need a PowerShell Script to enable Auto Reply during weekends.

Background

This is not a common scenario and not supported widely because the mailbox needs to be managed by an individual.  We can apply settings for a few mailbox like IT Service Desk which work 5 days a week and hence no support during weekends. We can set up an auto reply for non business hours.
