Day of the week is not localized in MailTips in Outlook Web App in an Exchange Server 2010 environment

Consider the following scenario:
  • User A turns on the Automatic Replies (Out of Office) feature in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 environment. Then, user A specifies an end time for the Out of Office message.
  • User B logs on to a mailbox by using Outlook Web App and then selects a non-English language in Regional Settings.
  • User B creates a new email message and then adds user A as a recipient.
In this scenario, user B receives MailTips that display the day of the week in English instead of in the language that user B selected in Outlook Web App.

For example, if user B selects German in Regional Settings, user B receives MailTips that contain the text "DisplayName Enddatum der automatischen Antwort: Saturday 31.12.2011 10:00 Automatische Antwort:  OOFText" instead of the text "DisplayName Enddatum der automatischen Antwort: Samstag 31.12.2011 10:00 Automatische Antwort:  OOFText."

This issue occurs because the attribute for the day of the week in the Out of Office message is converted to a string. However, the string is not localized correctly.

To resolve this issue, install the following update rollup:

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