    Auto Reply (Outlook XP)

    I am new to Outlook, and need to set up an auto reply to e-mail. I looked in the help menu and it says go to Tools, then "Out of Office Assistant" Im sorry but I don't show that. How can I do this easily. It was a breeze in Outlook Express.
    Thanks John

    The Out of Office assistant is only available if you're connected to an Exchange server. It is meant to send a reply if you're away from your PC for a long time (such as a vacation).

    You should use the Rules Wizard instead. See screenshot.

    and to add to Hans's comment - you have to leave Outlook running, for rules to be processed.
    I'm assuming you knew that because you do similar things in Outlook Express <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
