Of you are an Microsoft Outlook 2013 or 2010 user in an Exchange environment, you can easily set an Out of Office message if you’re going to be away for a few days. We’ll show you how it’s done with this tutorial.
Note: These steps only work if you are using Microsoft Outlook on an Exchange server. If you wish to set this up in a non-Exchange environment, see this comment from Kate.
1. In Outlook, select the File menu.
2. Click Info on the left side.
3. Click Automatic Replies (Out of Office). If this option is grayed out, you may not be connected to an Exchange server and will not be able to use this feature.
4. Select the Send automatic replies option. You can also check Only send during this time range: and select a time frame to send the replies.
5. Select the Inside My Organization tab and type the reply you would like sent to your co-workers who are on the same mail system.
6. Select the Outside My Organization tab and type the reply you would like sent to people outside of your organization.
You have successfully setup an automatic Out of Office Message in Outlook 2013 or 2010.
