How to set an away message on Outlook
Thursday, April 14, 2011/
Most entrepreneurs need to be accessible via email all the time, but when they go away it’s good to leave a message saying that you won’t be attending to correspondence for awhile.
To set an “away” message and reply system in Outlook, first go to “file”, and then click on “info”, which should launch a screen on the right-hand side.
You’ll see a number of options there – click the one that says “Automatic Replies”.
There, you’ll see a new screen giving you options on whether you want to say you’re in or out of the office, and will give you the ability to write a message for emails as well.
Under that, you can even add rules to specific incoming messages while you’re out of the office. Press okay, and you’re done.
