As we head into the holiday season, one thing that you may not have thought about is setting up an automatic reply to your emails. This is something very simple to do and is an absolute must if you’re not going to be checking and responding to your emails whilst you are away.
To set this up within Outlook, simply press ‘File’ and then ‘Automatic Replies’. You will be taken to the Automatic Replies setup window so that you can add a personalised out of office message for your colleagues within your organisation. As well as a more formal one for anyone that emails you from external to your organisation. You can also set the specific dates and times that the out office message is to be active for.
Other email clients that you maybe using will have a similar setting to do this.
So remember to ensure you set your out of office reply before you leave for the Holiday Period.
