    Scheduling Out of Office (2003)

    I want to set my Out of Office Assistant to apply in a couple of days time and switch off two days later. How do I set this up? Thanks, Andy.

    Isn't is a strange thing to want the Office Autoreply to only activate after you are Out of the office??? A bit weird....(in my humble opinion!)

    Who are you to judge that, Rudi? It's not stranger than some of the questions you come up with in other forums! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    I guess so... <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Here is a classic example of the intent of your reply with the appropriate smilie...
    Tx for the grin....

    If you used:

    or
    Who are you to judge that, Rudi? It's not stranger than some of the questions you come up with in other forums! <img src=/S/drop.gif border=0 alt=drop width=23 height=23>

    It's not so much a matter of "after", but "when". Scheduling means you don't have to think of it as the last thing you need to do as you leave on your hols, or remembering to turn it off when you return.
