Is my email still delivered when I get back an out-of-office reply from an Outlook/Exchange user?

I sent an email to someone who uses Outlook and Exchange, but I got an out-of-office reply because they are on vacation at the moment. Does that mean my message has been delivered, or was it simply bounced?

"The out of office reply is something that a user can set and Exchange will automatically deliver to the sender when a email is received to their mailbox.

It is possible that the recipient can set a server based rule to automatically forward and/or delete any message that comes in, in which case, they will probably say in their responder - however this is up to them and is not normally the case.

If you exclude the above, in a typical setup, the response is just a response and when they get back, they should see your email."
