I have a customer who is away every Wednesday. He wants an auto-reply / out of office message to be set for those Wednesdays. His emails hosted on Office365 and hes using the latest Outlook from there.  I have looked at setting up a message rule to do it but it seems our timezone and the server timezone are too far out of whack for it to work properly (as per this article: Outlook Out of Office on certain days) as well as this one: Setup reoccurring Out of Office Replys


Ive checked the server and it seems to be the timezone is +0000 which means the Wednesday will span over Tuesday and Wednesday based on the time stamps of the existing emails.  One suggestion was do it based on the senders timezone but that appeared to be +0000 as well for the existing emails I checked out. 


If anyone has any suggestions Im all ears!

Use the Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration script, and just do a scheduled task which will set it and disables it at the required time.

Thanks. That looks like it'll do exactly what I want!
