If I have a vacation message set in Exchange and I am over quota, will people get my vacation message or will they just get the exceeded quota message?

If the receiving user is over their receive quota, the sending user will receive a bounceback.

If the sender received the auto-reply (out of office message), they would assume that the message was received, which isn't the case, since the recipient was over quota.
