Setting the Vacation Auto-responder

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 .
