This week's Exchange question comes from an administrator with a question about autoreplies:
We are running exchange 2010 sp3 and have a policy enforcing no OOF externally which has been set at the remote domain. Is there a way to exempt certain individuals from this, allowing them to send OOF externally?
You can allow Out of Office replies by domain, by adding remote domains for specific domains and/or you can use the Set-Mailbox cmdlet to allow (or block) users or groups from sending out of office replies externally.
Use the ExternalOofOptions parameter in the Set-Mailbox cmdlet to allow specified users to send OOF to external addresses.
Set-Mailbox -Identity John -ExternalOofOptions External
For more Set-Mailbox parameters, see Set-Mailbox at TechNet.
