Setting an Out-of-Office Reply

If you are going to be out of the office for an extended period of time (a full day or more), you can set up your e-mail account to send automatic replies to notify senders of your absence. This guide gives instructions for setting up automatic replies using the Office 365 portal. Please also see our blog article on composing a secure Out-of-Office message.

  2. Click on the Mail icon. 
  3. Click on the Settings gear icon in the upper right corner.  
  4. Choose "Automatic replies" and fill out the form as desired. Click OK when done.

NOTE: For security reasons, it is not recommended to let people know you are "on vacation."
