    Automate Outlook Out of Office

    I cannot find a way, if it exists at all, to automatically have my Out of Office set at a desired time every Work Day.

    i.e. I would like my Out of Office to automatically activate at 5:00pm and automatically de-activate at 9:00am.

    Is there a way to do this with Outlook... if not, can someone recommend a good tutorial which would detail the steps to create a Macro or a Script of some sort.

    Thanks!

    Short of setting it manually every day it's a bit tricky, but this site has a script that can automate it for you.

    cheers, Paul

    Yes, I have seen that one, along with this one here...

    I am just astounded that Microsoft has not allowed for this as a standard in Outlook.

    There is a way to put a range... StartDate/Time to EndDate/Time, but there is now way to decouple the Date and Time.

    Thanks.
