How it works

The automatic reply assistant in Office 365 and Exchange Server will only send one automatic reply to any given sender throughout the period that the automatic reply is active.

This may be considered inadequate when an automatic reply is active for a longer period. The sender may not remember having received an out of office reply or its content.

The solution to this problem is to reset the sender list that Office 365 and Exchange Server maintain in each mailbox when the automatic reply assistant is active.

Resetting the sender list only every 24 hours avoids mail loops and a sender getting the same automatic reply more than once a day; a sender will simply get an automatic reply the first time on any given day they send an email.

Out of Office Extender includes a service that resets the automatic reply sender list daily, or on specified week days, at a specified time, for all or a selected set of mailboxes.

You configure the schedule and mailboxes to be processed in the accompanying configuration application, which also provides a status overview.

Out of Office Extender ensures automatic replies (also known as out of office replies) are sent consistently while automatic reply is active on Office 365 and Exchange Server.
