How to set up an ‘out of office’ email reply

Let’s face it, times have been tough this year and at long last, you get to go on that holiday you’ve been thinking about right throughout the year.

But you have one problem.

You are bound to be inundated with emails from clients, business partners and people who want information right now.

But, you won’t have access to your email while on holiday.

What do you do?

Well, if you’re running an Outlook.com, Exchange or Office 365 email account, we have you covered.

First off, you’ll want to hover over the tab marked ‘file’ and select ‘automatic replies’.

The next step:

In the automatic replies box, select ‘send automatic replies’.

A handy tip: Set a date range for your automatic replies otherwise you’ll need to manually turn them off.

Step three:

On the ‘inside my organisation’ tab, type the response you would like to appear while you are away.

A handy tip: Sending automatic replies to ‘anyone outside my organisation’ will also send automatic replies to each and every newsletter you receive, such as spam, junk email etc

And voila, you are ready to go on that much needed break.
