Out of Office Assistant
If you ever need to be out of the office for an extended period of time, you might want to consider setting up your Out of Office Assistant. This feature will send automated responses to anyone who sends you e-mails while you are gone.
At the top right corner, select Set automatic replies from the Settings tool (looks like a little gear)
On this page, select the radio button that says Send automatic replies
You can set the date and time for these automatic replies to send when you are out of the office.
In the text box below, write out the message you wish for Outlook to send to those who e-mail you.
