The OOF message is not removed from the “Type a note” box in Office Communicator


Consider the following scenario:
  • You use Microsoft Office Communicator in an Office Communications Server 2007 R2 environment.
  • You turn on the Out of Office (OOF) assistant in Outlook.
    Note After you do this, the OOF message displays in the Type a note box in your Office Communicator.
  • You turn off the OOF assistant or you wait for the OOF message to expire.
In this scenario, the OOF message is not removed from the Type a note box.


This issue occurs because the expiration maintenance task does not successfully remove the OOF message.


To resolve this issue, install the following cumulative update: 
2404534 Description of the cumulative update package for Office Communications Server 2007 R2 database: November, 2010


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
