Unhappy How do you deal with internal/external out of office?

Please Login to Remove!


we have Exchange 2010 RU4 and BES 5 SP2.
On Exchange 2010 you can set seperate out of office messages for internal and external.

BES only supports one of them. WTF?

Is there any workaround? Maybe it's somehow possible to go back to the "old" out of office wizard with only one text for both internal and external.
But I didn't find how to do that either

Thanks for any help!

Unless out of coverage and you have a device that has push email, why even set it?

Its just a way for spammers to confirm your email address in the long run.

Our mail server blocks all OoO emails to unknown senders. New customers should be coming in on generic email addresses, so they're not affected. Internal and known external addresses will get the proper OoO message.
