Error: Although the 'Out of Office' agent is enabled in the mailfile, the agent does not run
Symptom: I have enabled the 'Out of Office' (OoO) agent. However if a person sends me an e-mail, no OoO notification is received.
Verify when the Out of Office agent was enabled
Notice that once the Out of Office agent is enabled it can take up to one hour to start running.
Also, when sending an e-mail to an OoO enabled mail file it can take up to 90 minutes for the OoO notification to be received.
Therefore, you have to wait a minimum of 2 and a half hours to confirm that there is a problem with the Out of Office agent.
