Outlook Express - Away Status

  tsihar 14:20 28 Mar 2004

I'm going away for a few days and want to advise Emailers that I won't be able to respond to their messages. Clicking on Tools in OE as advised in Help however shows "My Online Status" (and Messenger) greyed out. What am I missing?

Under Message>Create Rule From Message try enabling For All Messages in the first section and then in the second section Reply with Message.

Don't know if this will work if you don't collect Messages.....:-)

i would forget about this and apologise later for late reply as it lets people know you will not be at home and could be a security risk.

Huggyg: Yes, I had thought that. You've helped me make up my mind. I won't post an "away" notice (even if I could!). Thanks all for responding.

A bit of a bizzare suggestion...:-)

How many of tsihar's friends would pop round to do what you are probably inferring if they realised he/she was away?
