Exchange Server 2010 Out of Office

Purpose

Exchange mailbox may have multiple SMTP addresses. For outgoing Out of Office messages Exchange 2010 server always uses the primary SMTP address. For example, John Doe has a mailbox with john.doe@comapnya.com primary SMTP address and john.doe@companyb.com secondary SMTP address. In case an external user has sent a message to john.doe@companyb.com (secondary SMTP address), he get an OOF message from john.doe@companya.com (primary address). This behaviour is by design in Exchange 2010 server.

MultiOOF application ensures that the OOF message's From: address will be the same as original message's To: address.

The application is a custom transport agent.

Current version: 1.0.0.1

F.A.Q.

Q. I am having trouble getting the program to work. When I enable the transport agent, I get 1052 ans 16023 errors in Event Viewer and the Transport service will not stay running.
A. Exchange uses the Network Service account for the Transport Service credentials and it seems this account didn't get security permissions to MultiOOF2010 program folder. Try to add Network Service account read permissions to that folder.

Q. I am about to purchase this product but I wondering regarding updates/patches. What are the policies regarding updates? Do you provide them freely or as a purchase?
