A common request of a domain administrator is to set and unset away messages for user accounts. Frequently users go on holiday forgetting to set their e-mail auto-reply, and likewise forget to switch them off on return. I cannot see that a domain administrator has the power to configure an away message for a user account in the admin console. Am I missing something?
Also, there seems to be an inconsistency in terminology within Zimbra regarding away messages. Acknowledging that the on-line user guide itself states that away messages are also known as out-of-office auto-reply messages, I think that the Zimbra admin console account preferences, and the Zimbra Ajax/HTML preferences should agree on terminology. The former refers to the feature as an away message, and the latter as auto-reply message.
