    Automatic email reply?

    Been struggling to figure out how to set up automatic email reply in Outlook (with body = "out of office today...etc" and subject line = "Automatic Out of Office Reply...etc.") using rules assistant for when I'm away from my home office. I give up. Any suggestions on how to get this done? Thanks... <img src=/S/nuts.gif border=0 alt=nuts width=15 height=15>

    are you using exchange server? if not, which version of outlook? rules can do it, but it might be version-specific.

    what is not working for you?

    the specific out of office replies only send one per day per address. if send you six messages, i'd only get one OOF reply.

    Re: Automatic email reply?

    Thanks, MaryJ. I'm using Outlook (v 9.0.0.2711). I get 100 emails/dy, need to be able to automate the dispatch of reply email indicating out of office, etc. Setting up through Rules Wizard says, reply using X template. Can't figure out how to establish the template, nor how to get the Out of Office Reply into the subject line. Help! -- Zach

    open a message form and type in your information, then save as a template.

    the subject line can't be dynamic unless you create ones using script.
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.emailtemplates.com/>http://www.emailtemplates.com/</A> has some ready to use.
