Set Automatic Replies (Out of Office) through Outlook (Android / iOS)


We all have occasions where we're out of the office or unable to receive email.  Automatic Replies provides us with a means to communicate to our contacts that we are unavailable, while setting the expectation as to when we'll be back in touch.  We can also use this as a tool to inform our contacts of any alternative means of contact, for example in the case of an urgent message.  It also allows us to delegate contact to other members of our team who might be in a position to assist.

This article will assist you in setting your automatic replies from the Outlook App in your your mobile device.
