    Running Outlook XP on Win XP OS. Haven't been able to get the Out of Office Assistant to work. It's not displayed in the TOOLS menu and even though I've activated it in the Add-In Manager function it still doesn't show up. Did the obligatory reboot after making changes but no success. The MS website doesn't offer any other solutions.

    Anyone experience this problem and if so what did you do to fix it? Thanks.

    This may be obvious but Out Of Office Feature is only available if you are connecting to an Exchange server. Is this the case?

    that, or... you have to leave your computer on and hooked up to the net. In other words, your pc needs to be able to communicate with the mail server
