Outlook 2010 – How to Set Up an Out of Office Message

Well, today’s my last day in the office before I embark on a much anticipated two week vacation. I thought it’d be appropriate to leave you with the step-by-step instructions for how to set up an “Out of Office” message in your Outlook.

How to Set Up an Out of Office Message in Outlook 2010:

  1. Click on the orange File Menu tab (far left side of the ribbon).
  2. In the Info section below “Account Settings” you will see a square button labeled “Automatic Replies.” Click away.
  3. Type or adjust your message with the current info (ie. “I will be returning on August 15, 2011, beautifully suntanned and glowing with renewed energy…”). Press ok to save.
  4. When you’re ready to leave, select “I am currently Out of the Office.”

Cheers folks!
Looking forward to connecting with you when I return.
