OOF-Admin and / or OOF-Enterprise?

At first glance, both programs deal with similar problems, but with different targets. The two programs work seamlessly together and can be used together.

OOF-Admin is used to set the Out of Office settings for absent users (for example because of illness, forgotten before the holiday, etc.). Also Outlook-Delegates and Out of Office rules can be set up, without direct access to the appropriate mailbox. Your data protection officer will be pleased.

OOF-Enterprise lets you specify uniform and yet personalized Out of Office messages, based on custom templates across the enterprise. The Exchange Out of Office assistant can automatically be set, based on Outlook calendar entries ( "I'm back on ...") and even can be switched on and off.

The following table shows you the similarities and differences of both programs.
