Sending out of office messages inside and outside your organization
To specify whether the message is sent internally or externally, use the Inside my organization and Outside my organization tabs in the New/Edit Out Of Office item window (Fig. 1.).

Please note that you cannot configure auto-replies to be sent only to external users. Sending out of office messages internally is active by default and cannot be disabled
On the Outside my organization tab you can also decide who will receive the out of office message. There are two options:
- My contacts only - external senders listed as Contacts in a particular mailbox on Exchange
- Anyone outside my organization - all external senders including those listed as Contacts in a particular mailbox on Exchange
