When using Exchange 2007 and Outlook 2007, the following error may popup after you try to open the Out-Office Assistant:
“Your Out of Office settings cannot be displayed, because the server is currently unavailable. Try again later.”
One of the following reason may cause this error:
- You’re trying to open the OOF settings of different Exchange-account
- Incorrect Autodiscover Service settings
- Wrong certificate
- “Enable Anonymous Access” is enabled in IIS on te EWS virtual directory.
1) In most cases, the reason for this error is thatIf you try to adjust the Out of Office settings of User A, while you’re logged on as User B, As an Exchange administrator, you probably need to modify collegues’ Out of Office settings on occasional basis. Unfortunately, this is not possibleSince we have migrated from Outlook 2003 to Outlook 2007, I couldn’t modify Out of Office settings anymore. Editing OOF settings by logging in with an administrator account resulted in the following error:
“Your Out of Office settings cannot be displayed, because the server is currently unavailable. Try again later”
Solution: Keep one system up with Outlook 2003. :)
Another solution is to log in as user X, but then you will have to reset the users’ password.
