GetUserOofSettings Operation

Topic Last Modified: 2008-09-05

The GetUserOofSettings operation gets a mailbox user's Out of Office (OOF) settings and messages.

The GetUserOofSettings operation provides access to a user's OOF settings. A user is identified by the user's e-mail address. If the OOF message is null and OOF is enabled, no OOF message is sent.

If the OOF messages are set by Microsoft Office Outlook, this operation will return the OOF messages in HTML format.

The following is an example of a GetUserOofSettings request that gets a single user's OOF information.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" 
               xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" 
               xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
  <soap:Body>
    <GetUserOofSettingsRequest xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/exchange/services/2006/messages">
      <Mailbox xmlns ="http://schemas.microsoft.com/exchange/services/2006/types">
        <Address>User1@example.com</Address>
      </Mailbox>
    </GetUserOofSettingsRequest>
  </soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>

The following elements are used in the request:

The following response example shows a disabled OOF state with the OOF messages.
