The following example shows you how to form a GetUserOofSettings request and receive the response.

static void GetOOF(ExchangeServiceBinding esb)
    // Create the request.
    GetUserOofSettingsRequest request = new GetUserOofSettingsRequest();
    request.Mailbox = new EmailAddress();
    request.Mailbox.Address = "";

        // Send the request and get the response.
        GetUserOofSettingsResponse response = esb.GetUserOofSettings(request);
        if (response.ResponseMessage.ResponseClass == ResponseClassType.Success)
            if (response.AllowExternalOofSpecified)
                Console.WriteLine("External OOF enabled for: " + response.AllowExternalOof);

            // Display OOF information.
            Duration dur = response.OofSettings.Duration;
            Console.WriteLine("OOF start time: " + dur.StartTime.ToString());
            Console.WriteLine("OOF end time: " + dur.EndTime.ToString());

            Console.WriteLine("OOF state: " + response.OofSettings.OofState);
            Console.WriteLine("External reply: " + response.OofSettings.ExternalReply.Message);
