Setting the Out of Office Reply at the Command Line

If you've ever had to set someone's (like a VP's) Out of Office message because they left town before doing so, and of course don't have access to Outlook Web Access, it can be quite a disruption to your work. Recently I was surfing Jim McBee's blog and found this gem, which he in turn had gotten from Bharat Suneja and the Exchange team.

Just replace the text in bold red and run it in an Exchange Command Shell:

Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration jsmith@contoso.com –AutoReplyState Scheduled –StartTime “11/2/2011” –EndTime “11/9/2011” –ExternalMessage “External OOF message” –InternalMessage “Internal OOF message
