If you will be out of the office for a holiday, vacation, or other circumstance, set an auto-responding Out of Office message to alert those who try to contact you via email.
- Indicate specific start and end dates, or set your message to begin now and end indefinitely to turn off later.
- You may use the default Out of Office message by clicking Use Default Message, which looks like this:“I am currently out of the office and will not be checking e-mail. I will reply to your message as soon as I return.”
- To turn your Out of Office Message on, click Turn Out of Office Message On.
- When you return to the office and would like to turn this message off, go to the Out of Office Message option in the Preferences menu and select Turn Out of Office Message Off.
