If you are going to be out of the office for an extended period of time, you may wish to turn on the automatic reply (Out of Office) message. This feature will automatically reply to incoming messages while you are out of the office.
To setup an Out Of Office reply in Outlook Web App (OWA):
Log onto: https://outlook.athens.edu/owa
After logging into OWA, click the Settings icon, located in the upper right hand corner of your screen.
Select the Set automatic replies option from the drop down menu.
Once in Automatic Replies select Send Automatic Replies to set up the date/time and to type your message.
Click on Save to save your settings.
Note: You have several options available. You can send replies during a given time period. You can also customize the reply for those people "inside my organization" as well as "outside my organization".
