Outlook sending 2 vacation replies

Specs: Windows XP
I have an Outlook user who set his Out of Office/Vacation reply and after testing it, people sending him a note were getting two replies from the Out of Office feature. One is worded with is new message and the other with his previous message. Very weird. Can anyone offer insight?

Answered my own question. Probably this issue came form the fact that the user has Outlook Mail set up on more than one machine and so he is likely occasionally to do things that de-sync his local account relative to the Outlook server, and who knows what sort of division of labor (or crossed functions) may exist vis-a-vis the Outlook server and any given open Outlook client on a user machine.

Well anyway, to force the change to the vacation message status to happen on the server, I logged into his account over OWA (Outlook Web) and updated his vacation settings there. After that, the double-message problem went away.
