Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Use automatic replies, part of Outlook 2016: Efficient Email Management.
- [Voiceover] There is one more rules based feature…and that's Automatic Replies,…which used to be called Out of Office Assistant.…And indeed, most people still call it…the Out of Office Assistant or Out of Office Rules.…These are rules that allow you to set up Outlook…to manage messages that are coming in,…whether they're coming from inside or outside…of your organization so you don't return to work…and have a lot of people wondering…why you never replied to them.…
To get to Automatic Replies, they're not in the Move area,…they're actually backstage, so you click File…and with Info selected, which it automatically is,…you'll see Automatic Replies…and you will click here…to get to Automatic Replies.…By default, there are no automatic replies,…but most organizations require you…to do something with Automatic Replies.…Some organizations are very stringent…about what you need to do…and some of them are a little more wide ranging.…
There are two different choices that we have here…once you say you'd like to send automatic replies.…
