Out of Office Replies

Copper Contributor

I've never used out of office messages. In fact, I hate them. I've been on the other side of the world and still checked my emails.


However, next week I will be in a situation where I will have absolutely no internet access for 72 hours. I'd like to have an out of office reply. However, I am on a few Listservs and I don't want my OOO message to go to the list. I already have a few dozen Inbox rules where Listserv and other newsletters skip my inbox and go directly to a separate folder.


How do I set up OOO so it only goes to things that come directly to my inbox and not to the world?

When configuring OOO, you can set rules similar to Inbox rules. You need to use the Outlook desktop client for that though. Go to File > Automatic replies > Rules (on the bottom) and configure them as needed.
