Out of office auto reply duration
Set OutOfOffice auto-reply duration
Can out of office auto-reply duration be changed?
The default duration of Out of office auto-reply message is 7 days i.e. the email addresses to whom Out of office auto-reply has been sent already will be cached for a period of 7 days and no further auto-reply is sent to these addresses until 7 days.
This duration is configured in zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeCacheDuration attribute at COS and account level.
Below are few examples to change the duration of auto-reply :
On COS Level:
zmprov mc COSname zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeCacheDuration 0 zmprov mc COSname2 zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeCacheDuration 1d
On Account Level:
zmprov ma firstname.lastname@example.org zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeCacheDuration 0 zmprov ma email@example.com zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeCacheDuration 1d
zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeCacheDuration 0 : This will send an auto reply to every sender repeatedly and not cache any email address.
zimbraPrefOutOfOfficeCacheDuration 1d : This will send an auto reply to the sender after a day only and avoid multiple auto replies for a day, you can adjust the value to xd (x days) according to your need.
