Do I run Mdbvue32 on the server or on the client workstation? Will this work if they have Outlook 2003?

I am running Exchange 5.5 SP4 but have users that have this same problem. Is there a simular solution for 5.5?

Ditto. Worked perfectly for me too, once I figured out which items were the OOF messages. Mine started with cb: 40|* pb: EF 00 00 00 19 82...

I had to delete the actual OOF config entry and this fixed it.

It works in Exchange 5.5 as well, the utility is in the server CD and it works great.

I am running Outlook 2000 on Windows Xp computers. We have Exchange Server 5.5 running on Windows Server 2003. We are experiencing a number of problems in Outlook. When I exit Outlook it hangs on the message "Please wait..." and I have to exit Outlook in the Task Manager. Frequently Outlook freezes when sending a message. A restart will help sometimes for a few hours, sometimes a few days, but the problem comes back. Sometimes if I minimize the Outlook window it won't open back.

I deleted every rule, because I had no clue which rule represented the Ouf Of Office rule. Outlook still works :-)
Messaging system: Exchange 2000 SP3, with Outlook XP SP3

I finally found out, how to determine which rule is the OOF rule. Just double click every rule and scroll down to: PR_MESSAGE_CLASS look for IPM.Note.Rules.OofTemplate.Microsoft

This is an excellent article and it worked like a charm.
