Resolving the problem

 

The Debug_OOS=1 parameter is used in the Domino server's NOTES.INI to debug the out-of-office service. Output is recorded in the Mail Routing Events view of LOG.NSF.

The following is sample output from this debug. In this example, a message was sent from an external account to an internal Notes administrator.

To see a list of users who are using the out-of-office service, run the following command on the Domino Console:

    tell router o


An alternative method to determine who is using the out-of-office service is to check the value for specific mail file databases in the "Out of Office" column in the Admin Client's Files tab.
