Remove Out-Of-Office rules from user mailbox

Exchange Server 2013Exchange Server 2016Description

This script searches for OOF rules created by users using the Outlook rule-tab in the OOF assistant and deletes exisiting OOF rules.

In preparation to configure compliant Out-Of-Office (OFF) settings for users, any existing OOF rule needs to be deleted. The script will use either an exisiting Exchange Server EWS library or the Managed EWS library installed using the default file path.

This is the first of two scripts for the complete solution. Find the second script here.

The script access the mailbox rules using Exchange Web Services. Therefore the account executing the script either needs to have ApplicationImpersonation rights or full access to the user mailbox.
