Published by Darron Toy on



hello and welcome I'm going to show you click by click how to set up an automatic out of the office reply for Microsoft Outlook 2010 if you have an exchange account then all you have to do is click file here and you'll have a nice little wizard for you but if you're using pop email you will have to go through these steps to do it now I'm also going to put the instructions in the video description as well so the first thing you want to do is click on new email and then you just type in what you want your out of office reply to be once you get your message typed out you want to go to file save as and you want to select where it says save as type you want to select outlook template and then give it a name I'm going to put mine in documents so it's easier to find and you can close out of the message you don't have to save the changes it's already saved so now you've got your reply click on file go to rules and alerts select new rule apply rule on messages I receive and you're starting from a blank rule click Next pick where my name is in the – or CC box click Next and then you want to click reply using a specific template check that box and go down here and click on a specific template and then you want to browse to wherever you saved that template which for me it was in documents and there it is vacation reply click open click Next and then here you can add exceptions to the rule if you want certain people not to get your your message or whatever you want it to be here but in general just click Next and then you can specify a name I'm going to put vacation reply turn on the rule box is checked click finish click apply and then click OK and then now your rule is running you can send yourself a test message is to make sure that it is working properly and of course when you do go on vacation you want to leave your computer on and just minimize outlook because it's not going to work unless the computers on and outlook is running I hope you enjoyed the video hope it's helped and thank you for watching

How to use this for only a specific period? Or must you delete the rule once you are back?

You are such a lifesaver. I don't know why they make it so difficult to do an away message.

When I click on "Rules and Alerts" an error message pops up that says "You are currently working offline. To use this command, you must go online and connect to Microsoft Exchange."

Thoughts?

great job explaining, thanks

Satyabrata Mahapatra · May 15, 2019 at 4:17 pm

This is too complicated. Just 1. Go to Files, 2. Info, 3. Automatic Replies. That's it.

temenos58 · May 15, 2019 at 4:17 pm

I followed the prompts but no rule option is offered after saving my message and clicking on file?

Aviation World · May 15, 2019 at 4:17 pm

Holy Cow!! I thought it was just an easy thing to set up your vacation email. Unreal Thanks for the video but why do they make a 15,000 step process to engage this?

William K · May 15, 2019 at 4:17 pm

Out of office until forever! Sorry. LOL Serious video, but it was funny.
