I have used this feature at another place of employment but do not know how to access it for use now.

Any help is appreciated--thanks!

    • If you are in an Exchange environment (ask your administrator if you do

      notknow) you can set the Out of the Office Assistant which is located under

      Tools.

      If you are not in an Exchange environment you can create a rule that replies

      on all e-mails. The downside of this is that you'll have to have your

      Outlook open all the time for the rules to process. Make sure you set some

      exceptions (for instance based on the subject field so it will not reply on

      subject with e.g. reply, failed, undeliverable, etc...) otherwhise you could

      create endless mailloops between two mailservers and those can be a real

      threat to the mailservers!

    • This is not what I'm looking for but thanks--this has to do with telephone messages that can be emailed to individual's mailbox. The format of this feature eliminates the "pink" While You Were Out" slips in many office environments.

    • Diane--

      Is this compatible w/Outlook 2000? I've downloaded the form but when I double click to install--nothing happens--I've placed it on my desktop (is this the right location?)

      Any info you can provide will be appreciated--

      Thanks,

    • Yes it is, but it may need published to work with the newer SPs. Add the pst

      to your profile and open the form, then tools, forms, publish form.

    • Diane--

      This is as clear as mud to me--is this something my network administrator needs to do or is it something I can do from my work station once I've downloaded the form?

      Can you clarify the answer a little more for me?

      Thanks!
