In our organization Lync statuses appear in Outlook next to the contact name.
When someone sets an out of office reply, a little asterisk appears at the corner of the status, showing he is out of office. Also Outlook show a notification in the compose window if the recipient is out of office.
I think these two are enough.
What I want to do is to have this asterisk and the message, but I don't want an automatic reply to any address (since the sender can see my message before sending me an e-mail).
Is it possible?
(This is the first time I want to use this out of office thing in Outlook)
