I am running MS Office 2007 & Win 7.

I know I'll have to have my Office 24/7 but I can't figure out why it's not running the rule that i made.

I followed these rule.

Method 1: Microsoft Office Outlook 2007Open a new Outlook message. On the Options tab, click Plain Text. Type the information that you want to have in your reply message. Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Save As.In the Save As dialog box, click to select the Outlook Template check box in theSave as type list. Type a name for your reply template in the File name box, and then clickSave. How to define a rule to send an automatic reply in Outlook 2007On the Tools menu, click Rules and Alerts. In the Rules and Alerts dialog box, click the New Rule button on theE-mail Rules tab. In the Rules Wizard under Start from a blank rule, click Check messages when they arrive, and then click Next. Under Which condition(s) do you want to check?, click to select theSent Only To Me check box or any other check box that you want, and then clickNext. Under What do you want to do with the message?, click to select theReply using a specific template check box. Under Step 2: Edit the Rule Description, click the underlined phrasea specific template. In the Select A Reply Template dialog box, click the template that you saved in step 6 of the " How to Define an Automatic Reply Template" section, and then clickOpen. Complete the Rules Wizard instructions, click Finish, and then clickOK.

Now my outlook is not running the auto reply. do i need to have an email addres in the " To" so that it can send?

I'm more confused on why it's not working. Any suggestion.

I know I'll have to have my Office 24/7

Which means that your rule will send an answer to every single pice of SPAM you get as well.

Your best bet is to see if your mail provider has an " On Vacation" function in its webmail service - very many do so these days. It's a LOT easier...

What type of email account is configured in Outlook? E.g. POP/IMAP/Exchange

Verify if Office 2007 service pack 2 is installed on the computer

Mr. Khan,

We are using " POP/SMTP(send from this account by default)"

I do not think we are using exchange.

Where can I find if I have MS Office 07 Service Pack 2?

Thank Ezil,

OK I got it to work. I just had to recreate it and also I'm in the process installing SP2

I have to keep Outlook open 24/7. I tested it by login out of Window and also closing Outlook and the rule will not run unless Outlook is minimized or open and running. Is there no way around it...

Did you investigate the webmail " on vacation" function? It's EVER so much easier...
