Change language settings for out-of-office messages

SearchExchange.com expert Bharat Suneja explains what to do if you want to change the language settings for out-of-office messages on Exchange 2003.

How can I change the language settings for out-of-office messages on Exchange Server 2003? I have a German Exchange 2003 server, but the out-of-office messages are in Dutch?
The out-of-office message is actually typed by a user. Did you mean the
« subject » of an out-of-office message? Check the server's locale/language settings.

Also refer to Microsoft Knowledge Base article 270018 Subject line in out-of-office messages is in a language other...

than English. That refers to such an issue in reference to messages in English (but the « Applies To » section does not include Exchange Server 2003).
