Out of office not updating
We have Exchange 2007 with a BES server and clients running Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007. You need to enable out of office setting in exchange 2003.

When an end user turn on their out of the office notice, it works however the email attachment is not the latest that they just put onto the server.

So, for example, when you’re going to be on vacation, you’d set up your out-of-office notification in Outlook indicating that you are on vacation (and any other information such as the dates, and if you’ll be checking email).
You can manually set your presence status to control how or whether you want people to contact you.
