Automatic email response out of office

When I am going to be out of the office and someone tries contacting me by

email I want to be able to have an email saying I'm out of the office and

when I'll be back.

If you use an Exchange account, then click Tools>Out of Office Assistant and

create your message. If you don't use Exchange, you'll need a rule and you'll

need to leave Outlook running the entire time you're gone. See this:

If you're not using Exchnage, I think you're better off if you can log into

your mailbox via a web browser and see if your mail provider has a

vacation/away reply option. Then the server will take care of it and you

don't have to leave Outlook running.

Please advise what type of account you have. If you connect to an Exchange

server (business, school, etc.) then you will find an out of office option

under the Tools menu selection.

If you don't, you can create an automatic reply using rules in Outlook but

the drawback is that you have to leave Outlook on and running for it to

work.

Alternatively, you can go to your ISP's website and see if they have an

option in their webmail to set such a notice.
