    so that feature only works from the client side in 5.0.3 and above. Okay.

    but this last message you sent w/ these CLI parameters:

    zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeReplyEnabled
    zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeReply
    zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeFromDate
    zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeUntilDate
    zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeCacheDuration
    zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeDirectAddress


    what do I do w/ these? run these from zimbra server?

    I know that this feature is enabled on the admin console side of things.. just trying to verify that I can get it for user side

    You really should upgrade as the feature wasn't 'verified' till 5.0.3 but:

    su - zimbra
    zmprov ma user@domain.com zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeReplyEnabled TRUE
    zmprov ma user@domain.com zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeReply I'm currently out of the office - if it's urgent please contact peer@domain.com
    zmprov ma user@domain.com zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeFromDate 20080418000000Z
    zmprov ma user@domain.com zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeUntilDate 20080419000000Z

    Default for the CacheDuration is 7 days - already set on the COS:
    zmprov gc COSname| grep zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeCacheDuration
    zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeCacheDuration: 7d

    Thus duplicate away messages will not be sent to the same user in the given interval of 7 days. On day 8, if they send that account an email, they would again get back one notification, then no notifications for another day.

    Setting to 0 would send an out-of-office notification in response to every email received (I'd avoid that). Plus, if you have user A with an away message up, user B sends an email, and immediately puts up their away message (with the attribute set to 0) you could technically get a loop.
    I prefer 3d or every week 5/7d depending upon how long the user is gone. ie: If they're typically gone a month, then every week etc.

    Set by:
    zmprov mc COSName zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeCacheDuration 3d
    or
    zmprov ma user@domain.com zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeCacheDuration 3d

    zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeDirectAddress was added in Bug 9196 - Ability to send out of office notifications for mail forwarded into Zimbra account
    zmprov ma user@domain.com zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeDirectAddress yourOtherAddressForwardedToZimbra@otherDomain.com
