Out of office messages are a handy setting to use if you are going away during school term. You can use this feature to send an automated reply to anyone who emails you during the nominated period. The reply message can contain a custom message i.e. alerting the sender that you are away until a certain date.


To set up an out of office message in Outlook on Windows:

  1. Open Outlook  and select File > Info > Automatic Replies.

  2. You will then need to Set your Preferences and Default Message.

  3. Once this is done, Outlook will automatically send an email to anyone who emails your email address during your 'Out of Office' period.
