You can set an email message that automatically replies when you are out of the office for an extended period of time.
The auto-reply message is sent to each recipient only once, regardless of how many messages that person sends you during the designated vacation period.
You can set up the out-of-office reply in advance and set a date when the message will begin to be sent and when the message should stop.
To set an away message
1.Select the Preferences > Mail folder, and scroll to the Receiving Messages area.
2.Check Send auto-reply message.
3.Enter the message to be sent in the text box, such as the one shown above.
4.Enter a date when the message should begin to be sent and a date when the message is not longer necessary.
5.Click Save .
If you have any questions or need assistance with setting the vacation auto-responder, please contact the ITS Help Desk:
