VB or PowerShell to configure and enable auto response out of office

Post by acs » Mon Sep 19, 2022 5:12 pm

I'd like to write a small program that allows a user to run it and set up their auto response. I looked through the api documentation for .NET and PowerShell and I don't see anything other than the ability to turn it on or off and set the start and end time. I want to be able to authenticate using the users email and password, set the subject and body, and enable or disable the auto response. Related I'd like to be able to set the mailbox redirection settings.

Is this possible? If I had a few examples of how these things work I could piece it together.

Hi,

There is no API for managing the autoresponder. But the following article describes how you can alter it and how it works:

The mailbox redirection though can be altered in PowerShell.
