If you are going on an extended vacation, or just won't be able to check your email for a while, you may want to set Outlook to automatically email people who email you to notify them you are out of the office.
Please note: The Out of Office Assistant only works for email sent from someone in the Winnefox system. You will still need to notify friends, family, colleagues of your absence. You will also want to unsubscribe from any listservs you are a member of.
Right-click the message you want to set the reminder for, point to Follow Up, and then click Add Reminder. In the Due By list, click the date when you have to complete the reply. In the second list, click a time. In the Flag color list, click the flag color you want, and then click OK.
