There are a few things you need to look at, number one is wether or not you care if people outside of your organization get oof replies. The second is how much spam makes it through your spam filter and hits Exchange. If you allow them your going to reply to all that spam which in turn is going to bounce cause spam never copmes from a ligitamate account and on it goes. Third, do your users subscribe to mailing lists? Most lists if you send an oof reply to the list your kicked, your users will love that. My opinion is don't allow them.

Hello Exchange Admins!

The itch I can't seem to scratch of the day is...

Do we enable Out-Of-Office replies to go out to the internet?  Is there a
general consensus on this?  What are the major drawbacks if any?  I know
anytime I post to one these lists I get at least 10 OOO messages.  Marketing
and Engineering want it enabled.  Frankly, I don't really care as long as
there is no significant impact on the system, so I am turning to you all for
a little advice.

Thanks in advance.
