More info. Are you the user or the admin. Do you need help from outlook or OWA? – t1nt1n Sep 27 '12 at 6:27
I'm the admin, i want to set it from Exchange 2003 not from Outlook. I haven't got the user password to access to his Outlook, but he forgot to set the out of office message. – Tobia Sep 27 '12 at 6:30
YOu need to give your self permissions to the mailbox and add it to outlook. Simple. – t1nt1n Sep 27 '12 at 6:33
Is it not possibile throw Exchange? Exists something like this: for Exchange 2003 ? – Tobia Sep 27 '12 at 7:09
You can do it via powershell but its ALOT easier from the GUI. Just give your self permissions to the mailbox, do the work. Remove permissions. – t1nt1n Sep 27 '12 at 7:28

Open up their mailbox in Outlook, or log into their OWA.
