Automatically process messages
You can base a rule on one of the 11 templates provided by Outlook, start from a blank
rule, or copy and modify an existing rule.
Separately from the Outlook rules that you run manually or automatically, you can set
up rules that run only when the Automatic Replies feature is active. The Automatic Reply
rules are built on a different set of criteria than standard Outlook rules; you can choose
from a limited number of conditions, and you can’t specify exceptions.
