Out of office replies can be set from either Outlook or Outlook Web access (OWA). (The campus Vacation notification you may have used in the past doesn’t work.) One of the nice features is you can put in a date range for which you want it turned on. So, you don’t have to remember to turn it off when you return from your trip. It depends on the version of Outlook you are using how you get to it. For Office 2013 click on File then click on the Automatic replies button. For OWA click on the “gear” icon in the upper right corner and select Set Automatic Replies. You will notice if you address a message to someone on our mail server that is out of the office, Outlook will give you a notice they are out before you even send the message.
