Access the Exchange Management Console
Ensure you use an appropriate Administrator account.
Access the Web Management Interface
If you're unsure how to get to this, click on Toolbox> Message Tracking.
Use the same Administrator account details to login.
Choose the User to manage
In the top-left corner you should see a link that says 'Manage My Organization'; hover over this link and click on 'Select User' from the drop down.
From the list, search and select the User's name.
Edit their message
A new window/tab should open with basic management options for that user; on the right-hand-side there are a list of shortcuts, click 'Tell people you're on vacation'. This will give you access to both internal and external messages.
Once completed, remember to save everything and log out.
