How to Set Out of Office in Outlook

Braintek Staff Tutorials

Welcome to the Braintek internet tutorials. My name is Greg, owner of Braintek, and today I’m going to show you how to set your Microsoft out of office inside of Outlook.

At the moment, I’ve got Outlook open. I’m going to click on ‘File,’ ‘Automatic Replies,’ and we’re going to bullet ‘Send automatic replies,’ and both here ‘Inside [and] Outside My Organization,’

I’m going to type out the message I’d like. “Thank you for contacting me. I am currently on vacation until June 1st. For immediate assistance, please contact the help desk at (281) 367-8253 or email helpdesk@braintek.com.” And “Thank you.”

And then the other thing I can do is I can set this option to end my automatic replies all by itself or if you’d rather manage it yourself, you can certainly do that. Click ‘Okay.’ And here in yellow, it indicates that the Automatic Office is turned on and if you click over here, you’ll notice that up at the top, it also says that your Automatic Replies are turned on.

So then anytime someone sends you an email, it’ll automatically send out that response. And of course when you get back into the office, if you don’t have it scheduled to turn off, you can just click ‘Turn Off.’ Now it’s off. If you need to go back and manage it, click ‘File,’ ‘Automatic Replies,’ and you can make changes as necessary.

Thank you for watching the Braintek video tutorials. Have a great day!
