You can quickly locate the setting by opening up properties for a user, selecting the Mailbox tab, and clicking on Delivery Options.

This opens up the following form, where you find “Automatic replies to external senders” in the Automatic replies section:

In Easy365Manager, the “Automatic replies to external senders” text field corresponds to the ‘ExternalMessage’ parameter of the Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration PowerShell command.

The PowerShell command “Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration -InternalMessage” configures automatic email responses:

Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration -Identity -ExternalMessage "Out of office until August 25th."

The benefit of using this command is that it allows users to inform external contacts about their unavailability, such as when they are out of the office, on vacation, or unavailable due to other reasons. This helps manage expectations and provides relevant information to those trying to contact the user.

The command ensures a consistent and customizable response, enhancing communication efficiency and professionalism. Moreover, by automating this process through Easy365Manager, administrators can ensure that users’ automatic replies are correctly configured and reduce the risk of errors that might occur with manual setups.
