Error description

  • ActiveSync clients (Windows Phone/Tablet, iOS, BlackBerry) which
    implement out of office leaving/returning dates are not
    currently supported by Traveler server. This APAR will allow
    this functionality to be used if these clients choose to
    implement it.
    
    Symptoms of the problem include setting out of office with a
    leaving and/or returning date/time and then seeing out of office
    was set indefinitely (return date in year 2050) instead.
    
    This does NOT apply to out of office when set using Android or
    Companion. This also does not apply to devices that do not have
    leaving or returning date/time fields available in the UI.
