Outlook 2010 – How To Setup Automatic Out of Office Vacation Reply


Hello and welcome! I’m going to show you click by click how to set up an automatic out of the office reply for Microsoft
outlook 2010. If you have an exchange account then all
you have to do is click File here and you’ll have a nice little wizard for your but
if you use pop email you will have to go through these steps to
do it. Now I’m also gonna put the instructions in the video description as
well. So the first thing you want to do is
click on new email, and then you just type in what you want
your out of office reply to be. Once you get your message typed out you
want to go to file, save as, and where it says “save as type” select outlook template and then give it a name I’m gonna put mine in documents so it’s easier to find Close out the message, you don’t have to save the changes it is already saved. So now you’ve got your reply, click on
File go to rules and alerts, select new rule apply rule on messages I receive – you’re
starting from blank rule click next. Pick where my name is in the To or CC box, click next. And then you want to click reply using a
specific template, check that box and go down here and
click on a specific template and then you want to
browse to wherever you saved that template, which for me it was in documents. And there it is vacation reply, click open. Click next. And here you can add exceptions to the
rule if you want certain people not to get your message or whatever you want it to be
here. But in general just click next, and
then you can specify a name vacation reply, turn on the rule box is
checked, click finish. click Apply and then click OK. And now you’re rule is running.
You can send yourself a test message to make sure that it is working properly. And of course when you do go on vacation
you want to leave your computer on and just minimize
outlook. Because it’s not going to work unless the computers on and outlook is running. Hope you enjoyed the
video, hope it helped and thank you for watching
