I am going on holydays for the next 2 weeks and I would like to leave an "Auto of office auto reply".

I've search through the menus and can't find it.

I've got Microsoft Outlook version 2003.

Thank you in advance
Ivana

Microsoft article Jun 27, 2007

Hopefully this article should explain everything:

At least, it says it applies to Outlook 2003!

only if someone goes online while you are on holiday Jun 27, 2007

Hi,
normally it is possible only if you are connected all the time.
The best thing to do is to go directly on the site where you got your email address.. and do it from there.
Good luck
Mette

Directly on ISP's website Jun 27, 2007

Hi Ivana,

Assuming you're with a Portuguese ISP like me, you can do it directly from their website (e.g. Sapo, Telepac, IOL, etc)

I'm with Sapo, so on their website (www.sapo.pt) I just go to "Área de cliente Sapo", enter my user name and password, opt for "criar/gerir e-mail" and there is a button to press for "msg ausência".

You just draft your message, set the dates and times you want it to be activated and that's it.

Hope this helps, the others must be similar.

Boas férias!

Out of Office Assistant Jun 27, 2007

Hi - we have Microsoft Outlook 2003 at work - in my version you select "Tools", then from the drop-down menu select "Out of Office Assistant". This gives you a text box with a default "I am out of the office until xxx..." message, or you can over-type your own message. Anyone who sends you an email then automatically gets the reply.

I hope this works on your version too!

Hi John,
You are using an Outlook client in a corporate environment.

What you are setting up, directly from your PC, is an instructions for your server that will work even if your PC is switched off during your absence.

The option is not present on a stand-alone Outlook client. Personal PC users must use their ISP server features, as described by other colleagues already.

bye
Gianfranco

only with MS exchange server Jun 27, 2007

Note that the Out of Office Assistant is only available if you have the Microsoft Exchange Server service in your profile. (MS - Help and support)

this works only for large organisations who use MS Exchange Server.

have nice holidays!

There is a simple way... Jun 28, 2007

First, write your message on a .txt file and save it.
Go to:
Outlook Menu > Message > Create Rule from Message >
1. Mark "The line From contains people (or persons)"
2. Mark "Reply with message"
3. Click on the link and add all the e-mail addresses you wish for people who will receive the message. Click Ok.
Now click on the message link, and do as the window says. Don't forget to mark .txt on the second lower bar of this window.

That'all.
