Inheritance Hierarchy



The following example shows you how to set the internal and external OOF settings for an Exchange mailbox.

static void SetOOF()
    // Identify the service and the user.
    ExchangeServiceBinding service = new ExchangeServiceBinding();
    service.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("UserName", "PassWord", "Domain");
    service.Url = @"";

    // Identify the user mailbox for which to set OOF information.
    EmailAddress emailAddress = new EmailAddress();

    emailAddress.Address = "";

    UserOofSettings OOFSettings = new UserOofSettings();

    // Identify the time that a user is OOF. 
    Duration duration = new Duration();
    duration.StartTime = DateTime.Now;
    duration.EndTime = DateTime.Now.AddHours(4);
    OOFSettings.Duration = duration;

    // Identify the external audience.
    OOFSettings.ExternalAudience = ExternalAudience.Known;

    // Create the reply messages.
    ReplyBody internalReply = new ReplyBody();
    ReplyBody externalReply = new ReplyBody();
    externalReply.Message = "This is my external OOF reply";
    internalReply.Message = "This is my internal OOF reply";

    OOFSettings.ExternalReply = externalReply;
    OOFSettings.InternalReply = internalReply;

    // Set OOF state.
    OOFSettings.OofState = OofState.Enabled;

    // Create the request.
    SetUserOofSettingsRequest request = new SetUserOofSettingsRequest();
    request.Mailbox = emailAddress;
    request.UserOofSettings = OOFSettings;

        // Send the request and return the response.
        SetUserOofSettingsResponse response = service.SetUserOofSettings(request);
    catch (Exception e)
