ARCHIVED: In Microsoft Outlook Web Access 2003, how do I use the Out of Office Assistant (vacation mail)?

In Microsoft Outlook Web Access (OWA) 2003, the Out of Office Assistant (vacation mail) option allows you to collect messages in your Inbox while you are out of the office and replies automatically to incoming messages.

The Out of Office Assistant notifies users who send you mail that you are out of the office and cannot reply immediately. The AutoReply feature will notify each sender only once, even if you receive multiple messages from that person.

To use the Out of Office Assistant:

  1. Click Options. (If you don't see the Options icon, on the Outlook bar on the left of the window, click the Shortcuts button.)

  2. In the resulting window, click the radio button next to I'm currently out of the office.

  3. In the box beneath "AutoReply only once to each sender with the following text:", compose a message. The Out of Office Assistant will send this message automatically to anyone who sends a message to your Inbox.

  4. Click Save and Close.

To disable the Out of Office Assistant, in step 2 above, select I'm currently in the office.

For more robust control of the Out of Office Assistant, including setting up mail forwarding rules, you should use Microsoft Outlook 2000, 2001, 2002, or 2003. See ARCHIVED: In Microsoft Outlook, how do I set up the Out of Office Assistant (vacation mail)?
