  • There is no way to set it globally or using a GPO, In Powershell you should be able to use Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/exchange/set-mailboxautoreplyconfiguration?view=exchange-ps to set it per Mailbox

  • Hi vgahod,

    As mentioned by Glen, I am afraid it's not feasible to set the oof template for all users. 

    Then please note that actually this forum is for developer issues about Exchange. For non-developer questions regarding Exchange, the previous TechNet forums have been migrated to a new home on Microsoft Q&A. We have created a copy of it on Microsoft Q&A Platform:
