1.2 Automate Outlook
Automatically reply to messages
If your organization is running Microsoft Exchange Server, you can use the Automatic
Replies feature to inform people who send you email messages of your availability. When
you turn on the Automatic Replies feature, Outlook replies automatically to messages
received from other people (but only to the first message from each person). You provide
whatever textual information you want within the body of the automatic reply message
(commonly referred to as an out-of-office message , or OOF message ).
