Some companies have half day leave options, So It would be nice if the out of office setting has time component as well for the leaving and returning dates similar to out look. So the user can select 09-Sep-2009 2:00 PM to 10-Sep-2009 2 PM.

There is not that much of a benefit in my opinion: You can turn the ooo-notification on/off any time of the day you like to. When taking a half day off, it just depends on you to turn it on/off at the right time.

This is possible since version 8.

Oliver is correct - as of version 8 it can be enabled in the Server Config document, buried away about 4 tabs deep, you change the Out of Office type from Agent to Service, give it half an hour (or reboot the server console), and restart the Notes client and there should now be the option to "specify hours" when you enter the OOO interface. Plus, and quite a big plus too, it now replies within a minute, rather than the default 6 hours.
