If you're familiar with the Out of Office Assistant, then the Automatic Replies feature should be easy for you because it's the same thing. This course shows you how to automatically respond when people send mail to your Exchange account, and your POP3 or IMAP account (Hotmail, Gmail, and so on). You'll also learn how to create rules that help manage incoming messages while you're gone.

Goals

After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Create and send automatic replies if you use a Microsoft Exchange Server account.

  • Stop both types of replies (Exchange and other types of accounts).

  • Create rules to help manage incoming messages while you're gone.

Before you begin
